  • Condensed Matter seminar: "Let it rip: In vivo biomechanics studies of Hydra regeneration from tissue spheres"

    David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A4

    Eva-Maria Collins, Swathmore College

    Hydra, named after the multi-headed monster in Greek mythology, is a radially symmetric freshwater polyp, a few mm in length. Hydra is famous for its regenerative capabilities, allowing it to regenerate from small tissue pieces and even from a "soup of cells" (cell aggregates). Because of its structural simplicity and strong regenerative potential, Hydra is a well-suited system for in vivo biophysical studies of regeneration and pattern formation.
