Joan Heath-Lab team

Joan Heath-Lab team

My research group typically comprises one to two Honours/PhD students, two post-doctoral fellows and one research assistant. Our research is also supported by full-time and part-time aquarium staff.
My team collaborates closely with the Lieschke, Dworkin and Stainer laboratories (Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute, Monash University, LaTrobe University and Max Planck Institute, Bad Neuheim, Germany, respectively).
Enquiries from individuals with a genetics or developmental biology background who are interested in using zebrafish as a disease model are encouraged.
