A new proof-of-concept study led by Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC neuroscientists shows that zebrafish are suitable models for human glioblastoma research. This confocal microscope image shows the interaction between the brain cancer cells, tagged in pink, and blood vessels, stained in blue and white, just two days after the human tumor cells were implanted in the fish.
