Zebrafish embryos as a tool to study ageing

Presented by Dr Freek Van Eeden, Senior Lecturer, Department of Biomedical Science

I have been using the zebrafish embryo for almost 25 years to study vertebrate development and disease. However studying ageing in embryos can sound like a contradiction. I will discuss the powers and limitations of the zebrafish model system, and present some of our own work on Hypoxia inducible Factor (HIF) and genome stability as factors that may be relevant to ageing.
