Final Report: Studies Using Zebrafish Models by Dr. Chen and Dr. Devuyst

Olivier Devuyst, MD, PhD, and Zhiyong Chen, PhD, University of Zurich, Switzerland
That fish in your aquarium is becoming a fighter in the battle against cystinosis!  Drs. Chen and Devuyst have used zebrafish, also called “zebra danio” at your local pet store, to create a new cystinosis animal model.  These fish will be used for drug screening studies which may lead to new therapies for cystinosis.  Learn more about Dr. Chen and Dr. Devuyst’s remarkable research in the final study report.
