Welcome to the Reddien Lab
We are located in the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research and are part of the Biology Department of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The ability of certain animals to regenerate new limbs, tails, or in some cases even heads has puzzled biologists for centuries. We aim to identify and understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms that control regeneration.
