Tsonis and Tabin


The TREND center was developed in 2004 with an idea to bring biomedical researchers, engineers and clinicians to bring their repertoire of tools to discern the molecular genetic basis of regeneration. The TREND center, the brain child of a highly accomplished and regenerative biologist Dr. Panagiotis Tsonis, was recognized the Center for Research Excellence by the state of Ohio. Dr. Tsonis employed highly versatile newt model to understand the molecular-genetic underpinnings of complex process of regeneration of lens and limbs. Dr. Tsonis passed away on September 3rd, 2016. Dr. Amit Singh took over as the interim Director of the TREND center on May 1st, 2017.
