Zebrafish at Brown

Scientists at Brown University teamed up to form the ‘Zebrafish at Brown’ research group.  Members of the group share resources to make efficient use of zebrafish as a model system and pursue collaborative research projects in neuroscience and behavior.  Current projects are focused on novel imaging and image analysis methodologies, peripheral neuropathies, brain infections, developmental brain defects and the effects of environmental toxicants on brain development and behavior.
