Something Fishy

 

Our next Lifelong Learning event is all about the zebra fish.

Register by noon, Monday, Oct. 20, to attend “Development and Disease: Fishing for Answers.”

The event will begin at 6 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 22. Sponsor Melrose Meadows, 350 Dublin Drive, Iowa City, IA 52246, will play host to the event.  UI Biology Professor Diane Slusarski will discuss how zebra fish embryos provide researchers insight into the form and function of human organs like the heart and eyes. This enables them to model human blinding disorders or cardiovascular diseases.

Please sign up online to attend this informative gathering.
