My name is Francesc Cebrià and I am a biologist and professor at the University of Barcelona. I do research on a fascinating animal: freshwater planarians. You can cut these small flatworms in as many pieces as you want and each tiny piece will regenerate a whole animal in very few days. Planarians and some cnidarians show amazing regenerative capabilities as they can regenerate the whole body from a piece of them. But many other animals including some insects, annelids, axolotls, newts, lizards and zebrafish can regenerate many organs and complex structures such as heart, jaws, lenses, tails and limbs. In this blog I will keep you posted on the most recent research on this amazing biological process that is regeneration.
