I am a classical developmental biologist who started to engage into regenerative medicine.
Currently my work is concentrated on different aspects of stem cell biology. I am generally interested in understanding numerous principles of animal design. To be more detailed, I attempt to understand cellular aspects of development and evolution, elaboration of novelties in cellular lineages, issue of biological individuality and competition of cells inside of the multicellular organisms.
