Limb Development and Regenration: Cell Adhesion Molecules during Limb Morphogenesis One interested research topic is the discussion of how limbs are formed and how the adhesion of cells contributes to not only the growth of a limb but also the regeneration of a particular limb, or limb morphogenesis. This is a very complex topic in biological science because if it can be answered then we can understand how the body develops for the cell to sophisticated form and structure. Now, the concept of morphogenesis is the formation and structure of an organ and the eventual tissue development and function of that organ (UVa Morphogenesis Institute). More specifically, the research that goes into it allows us to understand the function of cells and how they come together in order to make an organ function as well as repair it if need be. A facility that focuses on this is at the University of Virginia where they have their own institute and specialized faculty that focus on this single ideal. They have
