BIOGRAPHY AND RESEARCH INTERESTS
*** no longer involved in zebrafish research ***

Research interests include promoter studies utilizing zebrafish to describe the function of transcription factors in an in vivo system. Also, tangential interest in developing transgenic fish and using the fish in a classroom setting for elementary schools through to college.
