Sharp Minds Lecture Series

The Fleet Science Center is very excited to bring the Sharp Minds Lecture series back to an in-person event in the beautiful Heikoff Giant Dome Theater.

Developmental diseases – especially in children - are complicated, if not impossible, to study due to the lack of access to the damaged organ. In this talk, Dr. Matalonga-Borrel will discuss how zebrafish represents an excellent vertebrate model to bring new cutting edge treatments to patients suffering from Diabetes to rare diseases such as Alagille Syndrome.
