Review of Zebrafish Models to Boost Research in Rare Genetic Diseases

Summary A recent publication by Crouzier et al. emphasized the utility of zebrafish as a model for investigating rare diseases — enabling better understanding of their underlying mechanisms, and the development of therapeutics to treat these diseases. In this article we will discuss Crouzier et al.’s publication, and InVivo Biosystems’ ongoing work to help identify …

Why Turmeric? Separating the Credible from the Con

Turmeric has become a buzzword in the health community, its market size growing immensely in the past few years: approximately doubling from $50.3 million in 2017 to $97 million in 2020, and is expected to continue this growth, jumping to $191.89 million by 2028 (Grand View Research, 2021; Schultz, 2021). But what separates turmeric from other health fads like the routinely debunked ‘celery juice detox’ trend?

Lost and Found: Zebrafish as a Drug Discovery Tool

Summary Zebrafish models largely began as a way to research developmental biology, however, their potential to be a preclinical model of human disease quickly became apparent. While the pharmaceutical industry initially invested in zebrafish models, they have yet to widely adopt it – it’s time for that to change.  George Stresinger began using zebrafish as …
