Faculty
A collection of the zebrafish group leaders from the Hubrecht Institute and a selection of invited expert guest speakers.


Description of content
The zebrafish has emerged as a powerful genetic model to study development, organ formation, and the mutations that drive human disease.  This course will focus on five specific areas of current zebrafish research, angiogenesis and bone development, signal transduction pathways in body formation, the role of microRNAs in embryogenesis, heart development, and use of the zebrafish as a cancer model.  Prominent guest lecturers from each field will speak on each topic following a morning introduction from given by the host, with time for open discussions with the guest speakers afterward.
