Presentation: Alexis Sauceda-Quintero
Alexis Sauceda-Quintero (Life Sciences) was selected to give an oral presentation of his research at the recent 2017 annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) in Phoenix. An undergraduate researcher in the lab of Kelly Ai-Sun Tseng (Life Sciences), Sauceda-Quintero presented “Regrowing a Tail: Does Regeneration Catch up to Normal Size?” in which he described his findings on determining if natural tadpole tail regeneration resulted in a normal-sized appendage. He received a competitive ABRCMS Travel Award and a National Science Foundation Nevada EPSCoR Travel Award to attend the meeting. His research was supported in part by an EPSCoR summer research fellowship.
The Tseng lab studies limb and eye regeneration. Their work seeks to understand if there are common genes that can be manipulated to stimulate tissue regeneration in vertebrates. The long-term goal is to use this knowledge to develop applications for human therapies.
