Welcome to the Akimenko Lab web page! We are mainly a molecular/ developmental biology based lab that uses everyone’s favorite model organism Danio rerio, or the Zebrafish! Using transgenic and mutant zebrafish, our research ranges from fin regeneration to evo-devo work and plenty in between.

Please feel free to browse our ongoing projects, or recent publications to get a better idea of what we do in the lab. If you are interested in joining our lab, please see the research opportunities page.

Thanks for visiting!
