The laboratory of Dr. Jessica Plavicki
Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine
The Plavicki lab uses the zebrafish model to study CNS angiogenesis and blood brain barrier (BBB) development in order to assess the impact of chemical exposures and genetic mutations on cerebral vascular development and brain health. We are an imaging intensive group that uses transgenic reporter lines in conjunction with in vivo confocal time-lapse microscopy to visualize angiogenesis and barriergenesis in real time.
