Elly Tanaka receives the FEBS | EMBO Women in Science Award 2020
Elly receives the award for her pioneering work developing a molecular understanding of limb and spinal cord regeneration. She developed new methods to study the phenomenon, which had previously been considered too complex to understand at a cellular level. Through her work inside and outside the lab, Elly has galvanized regeneration research worldwide.
