New Faculty 2013: Meet Ashley Seifert

The Department of Biology is excited to welcome Assistant Professor Ashley Seifert to its faculty!
 
Seifert's work at UK will revolve around exploring the ways in which different organisms can regenerate tissue. The aim being to eventually use that information in order to help people who are either sick or injured. For more information on Seifert's research projects, check out the podcast "Out On A Limb -- The Science of Regeneration." 
 
This podcast is part of a series highlighting the new faculty members who joined the College of Arts and Sciences in the fall 2013 semester.

Out On A Limb -- The Science of Regeneration: Ashley Seifert

Biology Professor Ashley Seifert describes his job as a scientist and educator at the University of Kentucky as one of the best gigs around. It’s hard to disagree. 
 
Seifert only recently joined UK but he is already making big plans for the research he hopes to conduct. His background is one of a developmental and regeneration biologist meaning he studies creatures—mainly vertebrates—who have the ability to regenerate parts of themselves. 
 
Through their study, Seifert hopes to not only shed light on how these animals do what they do but learn potential new ways to help people who may be either sick or injured.
 
In this podcast, Seifert discusses the research he’ll be conducting at UK, his goals, the different species of animals he’ll be working with, and how being a scientist is one of the best gigs around.
