Seventeen Minutes of Science: Modeling Human Diseases in Zebrafish (Episode 4)

Stuck at home with nothing to do during this quarantine? Restless to still be learning and interacting with other scientists? You’re in luck! You can now tune in weekly to our virtual series “Seventeen Minutes of Science”. Every Tuesday at 11am PST/ 2pm ET we will go live on Facebook to talk about science for (you guessed it) 17 minutes!

This week’s host is Ben Jussila, an R&D Scientist on our zebrafish team at InVivo Biosystems, who interviews Dr. Jen Phillips, a researcher at the University of Oregon in the Westerfield Lab, where she uses zebrafish to model rare diseases as a part of the Undiagnosed Diseases Network.

Take a listen to learn about more about how using zebrafish has positively impacted Dr. Phillip’s research and why she finds the zebrafish ideal for modeling rare human diseases.

InVivo Biosystems’ experienced team can take over and deliver the results you need through our C. elegans gene editing services. We welcome the opportunity to discuss your project with you.
