The axolotl’s journey to the modern molecular era
Prof. JiFeng Fei
Guangdong Provincial People’s Hospital/ Guangdong Academy of Medical Sciences
Prof. JiFeng Fei is a Guangdong Pearl River Scholar Distinguished Professor, member of the Youth Committee and Developmental Biology Committee of the Chinese Society for Cell Biology. He has long been engaged in using animal organisms to generate disease models to study the mechanisms of central nervous system development and regeneration. In recent years, he mainly focused on a vertebrate model Mexican axolotls to elucidate its molecular and cellular mechanisms of tissue regeneration using functional genomics, single-cell sequencing, spatial transcriptomics, living-imaging and drug screening approaches, which may provide feasible strategies to improve limited regenerative capacity in mammals. He has published more than 20 research articles in peer reviewed journals, including Nature, Science, Nature Commun, Nature Protoc, PNAS, PLoS Biol and Cell Rep.
