Zebrafish in vivo systems and image analysis tools to assess osteotoxicity
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are ubiquitous environmental pollutants and a threat to both aquatic organisms and humans. In this regard, their toxic effect on bone formation and mineralization is still mostly unknown. In the BIOSKEL lab, we use zebrafish in vivo systems to study skeletal development and bone formation and have developed semi-automatic image analysis tools to assess osteotoxicity and gain insights into the mechanisms of action of osteotoxicants.
The seminar will be held on March 17, at 13:30, online via Zoom platform.
Participation is free, but mandatory to register. REGISTER HERE!
