Credentials: I am investigating the mammalian mechanisms of heart regeneration. We demonstrated that neonate mice can regenerate their heart from ischemic injury, but this endogenous regenerative program is lost during development. I will determine the potential role of ROBO-SLIT pathway in regulating cardiomyocyte proliferation and cardiac innervation, post injury.
