About the research
It's hard to imagine, but zebrafish and humans are very much alike. In fact, we share 70% of our DNA with these tiny fish. This makes zebrafish very interesting for research purposes. At the KU Leuven Annelii Ny uses zebrafish for her research on epilepsy. Thanks to genetically engineered zebrafish such as Didy, she hopes to find new drugs to treat these patients.
