Scientists at Seattle Children’s Research Institute are using a unique species of fish to find out why some babies are born with heart malformations and how a defective heart might repair itself. Lead researcher Lisa Maves, PhD, helped establish a state-of-the-art aquatics facility for zebrafish at Seattle Children’s Research Institute in 2012 after she joined the Myocardial Regenerative Initiative, led by Mark Majesky, Ph.D.
