The lab focuses on Pre-Regenerative Biology, which comprises the mechanisms by which tissues detect wounds to initiate healing, inflammation, regeneration, and cancer. We address these mechanisms by quantitative imaging in various model systems including live zebrafish.

Disclosures

Doctors and faculty members often work with pharmaceutical, device, biotechnology, and life sciences companies, and other organizations outside of MSK, to find safe and effective cancer treatments, to improve patient care, and to educate the health care community.

MSK requires doctors and faculty members to report (“disclose”) the relationships and financial interests they have with external entities. As a commitment to transparency with our community, we make that information available to the public.

Philipp Niethammer discloses the following relationships and financial interests:
