Xiaolei Xu, Ph.D., directs the Zebrafish Genetics Laboratory at Mayo Clinic, where he and his colleagues study cardiac diseases using zebrafish as a vertebrate model. Dr. Xu's lab generated the first embryonic and adult zebrafish models for cardiomyopathies.
By leveraging unique genetic tools offered by zebrafish, Dr. Xu and his colleagues are using these models to elucidate molecular mechanisms of cardiomyopathy and develop novel therapeutic strategies.
By generating cardiomyopathy models in zebrafish, Dr. Xu's lab aims to develop novel mechanism-based therapeutics for cardiomyopathy and heart failure.
