    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.
