Our group is known for running many, sometimes seemingly disconnected, projects. This is happening because we mainly aim at discovering new principles rather than factological details.
We do have our own scientific philosophy and we respect theoretical biology in addition to classical experimental approach. We look at a range of live systems from a mechanistic point of view, trying to decompose and reverse engineer different parts or aspects of life. Tracing the incremental advancements in development of multicellular organisms from single cell allows understanding the complexity of the entire organism or organ system in a final phase. That is why our main strength is developmental biology. The knowledge gained from developmental biology research is widely applied in regenerative medicine, and, thus, we hope to improve human health via discovering new fundamental ideas about how regeneration works.
