Integrated zebrafish research


UA logoZebrafishlab is a joint academic laboratory of the University of Antwerp (Belgium) consisting of members of the Gamete Research Center (department of Veterinary Sciences), the SPHERE research group (department of Biology) and the Applied veterinary morphology research group (department of Veterinary Sciences).

Our research covers many aspects of zebrafish biology, including reproduction, embryonic development, zebrafish adult ecotoxicological tests, early life stage tests and transgenerational tests.

We are equipped with a professional zebrafish breeding facility, various microscopes and imaging equipment, a zebrafish larvae tracking device and all necessary equipment for measuring various molecular, biochemical, physiological and organismal endpoints, both in zebrafish larvae as well as in adult zebrafish.
