Read also our interview with Professor Philip Crosier as published by Scientific Malaysian during the recent Zebrafish Workshop.

He is the Professor of Molecular Medicine in the School of Medical Sciences, at the University of Auckland, New Zealand.

His laboratory uses the zebrafish model to investigate aspects of human disease focussing in the areas of innate immunity, hematopoietic stem cell development, cancer and lymphangiogenesis so it’s great to have the opportunity to speak to Prof. Crosier about his life and research.
