In this episode, we bring on an internationally recognized stem cell and cancer researcher Dr. Leonard Zon from Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hosital. Dr. Zon talks to us about his work using zebrafish as a model to study cancer and melanoma and tells some really funny stories on his experiences with these fish.
