Regenerative Medicine Editorial on prioritizing studies of regeneration in nontraditional model organisms, by Drs Benjamin L King and Voot P Yin from MDI Biological Laboratory in Bar Harbor (ME, USA).

In this Regenerative Medicine Editorial by Drs Benjamin L King and Voot P Yin from MDI Biological Laboratory in Bar Harbor (ME, USA), the authors discuss how the study of nontraditional vertebrate model organisms with regenerative capacities far exceeding that in humans, such as the zebrafish and axolotl, can accelerate our understanding of complex tissue regeneration.
