Closing date for applications:  • Location: Leipzig Master Thesis (m/f/x): Identification of developmental neurotoxic substances by automated analysis of movement patterns and morphological changes in the zebrafish embryo
The aim of this master thesis is to compare three different methods (spontaneous contractions, photomotor response, locomotor response), which are particularly suitable for use in screening approaches, and to test whether a combination of these endpoints provides a greater significance. The concentration-response curves of suitable positive and negative substances will be compared, and the possible influence of morphological changes and compound uptake (toxicokinetics) on the observed effects will be investigated.
