Dr. Jedd Hillegass, Ph.D. Presents at BIO 2011

by Lampire

Lampire Senior Toxicologist, Dr. Jedd Hillegass, Ph.D., presented during the BIO 2011 show in Washington, DC, on the topic of:

Incorporating The Zebrafish Embryo Teratogenicity Assay Into The Drug Discovery Process

Abstract: Opportunities exist to incorporate in-vitro developmental toxicology studies early in the drug discovery process as a means to proactively identify teratogenic compounds. One of the most promising assays utilizes zebrafish embryos as a model system
given their ex-vivo/rapid development, transparency, and relatively good conservation of embryological processes.
