Toxicology Research Interest Group Overview
For decades zebrafish have been used as a model species to observe the adverse effects of xenobiotics on animal growth and development. Powerful advances in microscopy and genetic engineering are allowing scientists to explore the cellular and molecular mechanisms by which environmental chemicals and pharmaceuticals influence embryonic development.
The ZDMS Toxicology Research Interest Group seeks to enhance the use of zebrafish as an animal model to understand how environmental endocrine disruptors, contaminants and pharmaceuticals influence human development. We bring together investigators from diverse fields to:
