Stowers Executive Director and Chief Scientific Officer, Alejandro Sánchez Alvarado, PhD, recently appeared on the Tiny Matters podcast to discuss his work exploring regeneration. He also provided insight on the history of the subject and what the future could look like.

Regeneration is a hot topic in the sciences, and for good reason.

Or we could even slow the aging process and not suffer from diseases like Alzheimer’s.
