Research summary
During my lab rotation in summer 2021, I worked in Dr. Mayssa Mokalled’s lab studying spinal cord regeneration using zebrafish as a model. I studied genes that are involved in glial bridging post-injury through various staining and imaging techniques, loss-of-function assays, and the establishment of a transgenic founder line.
