Karolinska Institutet

The Department of Cell and Molecular Biology (CMB) is a department with a strong focus on basic science. CMB conducts research and education in cell biology, molecular biology, developmental biology, stem cell biology, cancer and infection biology.

Andras Simon’s research group is studying regeneration mechanisms in salamanders. The group has recently developed several novel methods, which allow for characterization of cell replacement and repair of degenerating tissues at the molecular level. They also place our findings into an evolutionary context.
