Research Project

Investigating the Developmental Toxicity of the Antineoplastic Cyclophosphamide on Embryo/Larval Zebrafish (Danio rerio).

This research project aims to determine if cyclophosphamide (an antineoplastic) has an effect on zebrafish (Danio rerio) by exposing the species to the drug during early development. This is significant as the project will address a significant knowledge gap regarding the aquatic toxicity of antineoplastics in the environment.
