Research overview:
Using freshwater hydra as a model organism, molecules which control morphopgenesis and cell differentiation are analysed. Particlarly, our current interest is focused on peptide signal molecules. Empolying a novel approach, a large number of peptide signal molecules are being isolated and characterized their functions.
