What We Do

The WATER Lab is focused on multidisciplinary, translational research that seeks to bridge and improve human, animal, and environmental health. Our research goal is to provide critical insights into developmentally-based and transgenerational, environmentally-induced disease with primary emphasis on endocrine disrupting compounds, aquatic toxicants, and contaminants of emerging concern, while also developing novel methods and approaches in zebrafish husbandry, genomics, and behavior, as well as promoting standardization of the zebrafish model and continued improvements in care, welfare, and conservation of aquatic species and environments.
