The rodent research at our lab is focused on many aspects of animal behaviors related to addiction, learning and memory, anxiety as well as depression. This research involves a wide range of tests and procedures (conditioned place preference, forced swimming test, novel object recognition, elevated plus maze test, chronic mild unpredictable stress) and a combination of behavioural studies with biochemical and molecular testing.


The time- and cost-effective larval zebrafish assays make this model organism a perfect platform for high-throughput in vivo studies of complex processes. Zebrafish have the same major organs and tissues and share a high similarity of physiological processes as humans. All of these make zebrafish as a valuable model for studying human diseases. In our laboratory, we use the larval zebrafish model in:

- acute toxicity test (ZFET),
- drug-induced cardiotoxicity tests,
- larval behavioural assays (anxiety, locomotion, 6-OHDA-induced PD model)


We have experience in quantifying amino acids and neurochemicals, assessing antioxidant parameters, and performing in vitro toxicological tests on cell lines
