2022 BRAD Webinar: Gone fishing - How zebrafish can teach us about human health and disease
Join us for the BRAD 2022 webinar sponsored by Tecniplast on April 21st, 2022 at 1:30 PM ET!

We all have experienced illness and disease, either ourselves or our loved ones and friends. Sometimes illness has a known cause like an environmental exposure or infection with a pathogen, but other times our own genes and cells cause or contribute to the disease. Dr. Marlow’s research focuses on reproductive health and fertility using a vertebrate animal model, the zebrafish. Her talk will explore how this tiny vertebrate came to be an important genetic model for discovery of the genes that contribute to human health and disease.

Logan France, DVM, DACLAM
BRAD Program Director @Americans for Medical Progress
Dr. Logan France is the Assistance Director of Clinical Services & Training and a Clinical Veterinarian at the University of Georgia. She graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Plan II Honors and received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2015 from Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine. She then completed a post-doctoral fellowship in Laboratory Animal Medicine at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and passed her American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine specialty board examination. Following her fellowship, Dr. France joined the faculty at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Florence Marlow, Ph.D.
Associate Professor, Department of Cell, Development & Regenerative Biology @Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
Dr. Marlow is currently an Associate Professor with tenure and co-director of the Development, Regeneration, and Stem Cells (DRS) graduate training area at Icahn School of Medicine Mount Sinai. Research in the Marlow lab is funded by the National Institutes of Health and applies molecular, genetics, transgenesis and cell biological and biochemical approaches to decipher the mechanisms that establish germline stem cells, pattern oocytes, and ensure fertility using the zebrafish.
