    Exploring Retinal Regeneration: the Hyde lab studies damaged adult nerve cells in the zebrafish retina and how they are regenerated from adult stem cells, called Muller glial cells. The goal is to identify a way to stimulate regeneration in the human retina.

    Discovering Ways to Repair Kidneys: The Wingert lab studies how zebrafish kidneys regenerate after being damaged. Because kidney damage and disease is a global health concern, this research may lead to a treatment that stimulates the damaged human kidney to regenerate.

    Identifying and Targeting Cancer Cells: The Panopoulos lab conducts research on induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, with a focus on how the process of reprogramming somatic cells could open new ways to treat cancer and blood diseases.

    Generating Genetic Models of Human Disease: The Schulz lab studies how adult stem cells in the fruit fly maintain the hematopoietic or blood-related cells. This research will be beneficial in studying the mechanisms that lead to blood disorders, including certain cancers.


Talk Science discusses stem cell and population ecology research

Author: Casey O'Donnell

Talk Science

From stem cells to population ecology, the research topics studied by both students and professors at Notre Dame is exceedingly diverse. Talk Science, a monthly event hosted by Scientia, the student-run journal of undergraduate scientific research at Notre Dame, aims to highlight research opportunities on campus for interested undergraduates to explore.
