“I'll be doing an 8-week collaboration with Wilbert Bitter at VU (Vrije Universiteit) in Amsterdam. Dr. Bitter has a well-established zebrafish embryo infection model for Mycobacterium marinum that enables detailed and rapid identification of phenotypes of mycobacterial mutants that would be difficult or impossible to observe in other animal models of mycobacterial diseases,” explains Doornbos.
