Dr. Andrew Holowieck, Assistant Professor of Biology at ACU, joined us in the Scholars Lab for Lunch in the Lab on Oct. 27 to share his dissertation research:  Utilizing the Zebrafish as a Model to Investigate Development Toxicity and Congenital Heart Defects.  

Holowieck shared that zebrafish are an important vertebrate model for the study of heart disease because of their transparency, allowing easy visualization of the heart.  

The Scholars Lab hopes to host more Lunch in the Lab sessions in the Spring.  Be on the lookout for the schedule of events!
