A Collaborative Workshop on Aquatic Models and 21st Century Toxicology

The need to screen thousands of environmental toxicants and small molecules, on human health has propelled the use of high-throughput cell-based screens to the forefront of toxicology. Yet these studies are limited by the availability of a model organism that recapitulates the development, physiology and disease processes present in humans without the burden of high maintenance costs and extensive husbandry, limited fecundity, lack of genetic diversity and societal opposition that diminish the utility of many rodent-based models currently in use. To […]
