Introduction to Scarlet Medusa
Here is a brief explanation of scarlet medusae and
expected research applications.
Scarlet medusae are unique organisms which have an
ability of rejuvenation.
There are other organisms which have a highly
regenerative ability, but scarlet medusae are exceptionally unusual because
they can rejuvenate to the pre-adult stage.
Studying this organism does not directly lead to the
application to rejuvenate human beings, but expectation to rejuvenate an organ
or tissue may be applicable; thus, a medical application different from iPS cells
and other methods is expected.
