Kerstin Bartscherer is a group leader at the Hubrecht Institute. Using both excellent invertebrate (planarian flatworms) and mammalian regenerators (African spiny mice) as experimental models, in combination with comparative approaches, the group aims to unveil the mechanisms that facilitate tissue regeneration. The ultimate goal is to utilize those mechanisms for promoting tissue regeneration in poorly regenerating mammals, such as normal mice, and eventually humans.
