Something’s Looking Fishy Here: Why We Use Zebrafish to Study Human Disease

Curious how a fish could help us find a cure for cancer? See for yourself.

Come meet the scientists from Dr. Leonard Zon’s lab and find out what the 150,000 specimens housed in one of the largest zebrafish facilities in the northeast can teach us about cancer, blood diseases, and potential medications and drug therapies.

Look at translucent zebrafish embryos under the microscope and see how researchers are using genetically engineered fish to answer biomedical questions.
