Joan Heath-Lab team

Joan Heath-Lab team

My research group typically comprises one to two Honours/PhD students, two post-doctoral fellows and two-to-three research assistants. Our research is also supported by two full-time aquarium staff.
My team collaborates closely with the Ernst, Lieschke and Stainer laboratories (Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute, Monash 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.
