The relationship between bone resorption/remodeling and obesity

Dr. Richard Londraville and Kathryn Bisaha


The Londraville lab studies the interactions between leptin, endospanin and their functions in zebrafish. In this project we will be studying the relationship between bone resorption/remodeling and obesity through the use of a zebrafish model. Through analysis of zebrafish scales, we can learn how diet impacts bone mineralization.

You will gain hands-on experience in the following areas: zebrafish handling and care, ImageJ analysis and molecular techniques such as calcein staining and fluorescent microscopy.
