KERSTIN REIMERS leads the
research division of the Department of Plastic-, Hand- and Reconstructive Surgery at Hannover
Medical School. Since 2011, she is a W2 professor for regenerative biology in plastic surgery. Her
research focuses on tissue engineering and regenerative processes in mammals and
amphibians—especially the axolotl. In 2008 she and her team identified the AmbLoxe as a signal key
to the axolotls regeneration capacity.
