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 Jeramiah Smith, salamanders and sea lampreys.

Produced by Research Communications at the University of Kentucky.
