Gone Fishing: Washington University Zebrafish Facility Tour

Friday, October 12, 2012 @ 10:00 AM-12:01 PM

On Science Series

Tour Guide: Erik Andrew Sanders, Fish Facility Research Lab Manager


At one of the world’s largest and most modern zebrafish facilities, tiny tropical fish are helping scientists understand human development and disease from birth defects and cancer to muscle and nerve disorders. Zebrafish are transparent, so scientists can see the progression of their research in real time. With almost 7,000 tanks, a 2,000-tank nursery and robots to feed its 500,000 residents, the facility is the envy of researchers in labs around the world. Fish Facility Research Lab Manager, Erik Andrew Sanders takes us on a behind-the-scenes tour of Washington University’s new zebrafish facility.
