NIH EUREKA award funds research at WPI aimed at turning adult skin cells into stem-like cells
The goal of the first phase of the DARPA project was to induce the formation of blastema-like cells at an injury site in a mammal. A blastema
is a ball of undifferentiated cells that in amphibians forms from cells that remain at the site of an amputation. It is capable of regrowing the ...

How does a zebrafish grow a new tail?
... and subsequent proliferation of the progenitor cells of the blastema." A blastema

"It is most likely the inability of humans to form a blastema
in the first place that renders us unable to re-grow arms and legs," said ...
New understanding of regeneration gained by Forsyth scientists
