MSC Professor Bill Detrich’s work has been featured in Nature Lab Animal, in an article entitled “To wild depths for new models” by Jim Kling. The article highlights Detrich’s work on Antarctic icefishes as models to study the human conditions of anemia and osteopenia. As Detrich notes, there are situations where “you have to look beyond conventional models to what I sometimes call non-model model systems.” Check out the article to learn more about Detrich’s work, and other popular and surprising model organisms and systems.
