Regeneration Bonus: Ann Morris

When we talked to the four biologists that make up the unofficial regeneration "cluster" at the University of Kentucky, we learned too many interesting things to cram in the group video. So we made a short video for each of them. Here's more on Ann Morris and zebrafish.

Produced by Research Communications at the University of Kentucky.

Talking 'Bout Regeneration

Four professors in the Department of Biology — Randal Voss, Jeramiah Smith, Ann Morris, and Ashley Seifert — are undertaking the basic scientific research needed to begin to understand regeneration.

Biology Grant Will Focus on Fish, Possible Key to Human Retinal Regeneration

Biology Professor Ann Morris' lab contains approximately 200 individual fish tanks, but only one type of fish.

Women in Science Forum

In addition to being an Investigator with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, a member of the National Academy of Sciences, and the recipient of numerous awards for her pioneering research on skin stem cells, Dr. Fuchs is also well known for her support of women in science.

This forum will be an excellent opportunity for you to hear about Dr. Fuchs’ experiences as a woman in science, to ask questions and share your own thoughts, and to interact with your peers from the Colleges of Medicine and Arts and Sciences. Please join us!

Seating is limited, so please RSVP to Ann Morris in the Department of Biology to reserve a spot: ann.morris@uky.edu.

Lunch will be provided.

What is Ann Morris' secret weapon in studying the genetic disorders that disrupt the human eye? A small, freshwater vertebrate called the zebrafish. Its innate ability to regenerate tissues within its retina following injury makes it a valuable tool for understanding the ocular disease that compromise the vision of thousands of people each year.
