Laboratory of Regeneration and Adult Neurogenesis, University of Geneve Research Labs

The group of Brigitte Galliot is interested in the molecular and cellular basis of regeneration and the regulatory networks that control adult and de novo neurogenesis. To investigate these questions they are using the Hydra model system. Their research focuses on the following questions: what mechanisms maintain a dynamic homeostasis in Hydra, what mechanisms support regeneration, including de novo neurogenesis, what is the function and regulation of stem cells in these contexts, which of these mechanisms have been conserved across evolution.

In the recent years, they have shown that cell death plays a key role in the initiation of head regeneration as dying cells deliver signals that promote the proliferation of their neighbors.
