Kelly Tseng, Cindy Kha, and Dylan Guerin (all Life Sciences) published a research article, "Using the Xenopus Developmental Eye Regrowth System to Distinguish the Role of Developmental Versus Regenerative Mechanisms," in the journal Frontiers in Physiology. This study addressed the role of developmental mechanisms in regenerating eye tissues after injury. The authors showed that regeneration of the retina recapitulates the developmental process. Furthermore, they identify a gene that is used by both development and regeneration, and a gene that is used specifically for eye regeneration. Frontiers in Physiology is ranked as the third most cited physiology journal in the world. Kha and Guerin are Ph.D. students.
