Project description

Taking advantage of interdisciplinary know-how in life sciences and engineering, this project uses a concerted approach to develop novel fluid dynamics models for blood flow in both larval and adult zebrafish. These models will be applied in zebrafish strains carrying engineered genetic mutations that lead to cardiovascular abnormalities, in order to assess their impact on advanced hemodynamic parameters.
