STATEMENT OF RESEARCH INTERESTS
The Smith lab uses the zebrafish model to identify novel mechanisms of cardiac development and function. We create stable genetic mutants (through forward and reverse genetic approaches) and allow the phenotypes to dictate the projects to investigate further to gain mechanistic insight.
