Zebrafish and embryo models for nanomedicine studies


Objectives: To develop zebrafish based models for understanding action of nanomedicines including Ayurvedic and Homeopathic ones. To test them by physico-chemical and biological means: in-vitro in mammalian cell culture, in-vivo in small animals and fish, fish embryos, and behavioral studies. Studies will include medicines across multiple systems of medicine and mainly experimental with some model building and simulations.

Background required: Any background stream, preferably with formal knowledge of, and willingness to learn more about biology (including cell biology), biomaterials and their characterization by microscopy and related tools, mammalian cell culture, small animal studies, 3D printing, model-building in CAD packages like AutoCAD, SolidWorks, and coding in python.
