The International Society for Regenerative Biology founded in 2021 to promote Community, Research, & Education in the field of regeneration worldwide.
While the community as a whole showed initial interest in this society, we want to spotlight the efforts of the founding members who have worked diligently to get the society off the ground:
- Kenneth D. Poss, Ph.D. is the James B. Duke Professor of Cell Biology at Duke University School of Medicine in Durham, North Carolina, USA. His research explores mechanisms of tissue regeneration in the zebrafish model system. He will serve as the founding President of ISRB. He can be found on Twitter @Ken_Poss_Lab or on his lab website.
- Elly Tanaka, Ph.D. is a Senior Scientist at IMP, Vienna, Austria. Her research focuses on unravelling the molecular cell biology of limb and spinal cord regeneration and the evolution of regeneration. She will serve as the President-Elect of ISRB. She can be found on her lab website.
- Henry Roehl, Ph.D. is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Sheffield in Sheffield, UK. His research focuses on the genetic regulation of musculoskeletal development and regeneration in zebrafish. He will serve as the founding Secretary of ISRB. He can be found on his lab website.
- Sabine Eming, M.D. is a Professor of Dermatology at the University of Cologne in Cologne, Germany. Her research program aims at a deeper understanding of how the skin senses tissue damage and how these events translate into a regenerative response or disease. She will serve as the founding Treasurer of ISRB. She can be found on her lab website.
- Amy L. Dickson, M.B.A. is the Executive Director of the Duke Regeneration Center at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, USA. While she spent roughly a decade doing research in the Poss Lab, Amy found her calling in the business side of research. She will serve as the founding Executive Director of ISRB.
These five members look forward to kicking off the community at our first virtual conference in April 2021.
