A course by the Fior Lab
2-6 May, 2022
The zebrafish, Danio rerio, has emerged as a powerful model system for the study of vertebrate development but also disease, in particular cancer.
This intensive hands-on short course will focus on the technicalities of generating zebrafish xenografts using human cancer cell lines.
It will cover:
- Protocols for preparation of human cancer cells for injection
- Generation of zebrafish xenografts (microinjection in the perivitelline space)
- Metastatic assay
- Protocols for immunofluorescence
- Mounting xenografts for confocal imaging
- Confocal session
