Jul. 11, 2013—A zebrafish model of a severe mitochondrial disease will be useful for developing new therapeutic approaches.
Oct. 18, 2012—A new method for creating genetic mutations that can be activated at certain times or in specific tissues will enable studies to probe gene function.
Apr. 6, 2012—A new screening tool – using glowing fish embryos – could identify therapeutics for myocardial hypertrophy and heart failure.
Jan. 5, 2012—Managing myocardial infarction – and the resulting heart failure – remains a clinical challenge. To search for chemicals that can stimulate cardiac muscle cell production, Vanderbilt Institute of Chemical Biology investigators led by Tao Zhong, Ph.D., Terri Ni, Ph.D., and Eric Rellinger, M.D., turned to a novel drug discovery tool: zebrafish. The researchers visually screened...
