Postdoc Jake Daane of the Detrich Lab has received support to study the genetic underpinnings of the rare blood and cardiovascular systems of certain Antarctic fishes, which has the potential to provide insight into fundamental and biomedically-relevant cardiovascular processes.
New research by Professor Bill Detrich provides the first detailed record of the embryonic development of an Antarctic fish, paving the way for research on the effect of ocean warming on this cold-loving species.
A recent study by a team of scientists including MSC Professor H. William Detrich sheds light on the mechanisms by which Antarctic fish evolved rapidly in the Southern Ocean.
Undergraduate Laura Goetz describes what a typical day is like working with icefish while on co-op in Professor Bill Detrich’s lab at Palmer Station in Antarctica.
New research by MSC Professor H. William Detrich sheds light on the evolutionary events that led to the loss of red blood cells and hemoglobin in Antarctic icefish.
MSC Professor Bill Detrich has been awarded a $1.25 million grant from the National Science Foundation to continue his research in Antarctica on how the changing climate might impact the uniquely-adapted icefish
The MSC’s Bill Detrich investigates the impacts of global warming on icefish to determine whether they have the capacity to survive in warmer seas.
Professor Bill Detrich is part of an international team that has completed the first genetic sequencing of a uniquely adapted group of Antarctic fishes.
