Please welcome Dr. Gonzalo Quiroga Artigas to Whitney Laboratory!

Gonzalo is a developmental biologist whose main research interest is animal regeneration and its evolution. He has worked with different invertebrate organisms throughout his scientific career, such as the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster and the hydrozoan Clytia hemisphaerica. His research so far focused on a wide range of topics, from the behavior of tumor cells to the molecular and cellular intermediates mediating light-induced spawning in jellyfish.

Dr. Quiroga Artigas received his BSc and MSc from University of Barcelona, Spain. It was in the ‘Université Pierre Marie Curie’ in France that he received his PhD in Developmental Biology under the supervision of Dr. Evelyn Houliston. Gonzalo now joins the Schnitzler Lab as a Postdoctoral Associate. His main research focus will be on stem cells, regeneration, and senescence in the hydrozoan Hydractinia.
