The KI Zebrafish Core Facility was established to provide expertise to KI and MIT researchers who wish to utilize zebrafish as a model organism for any kind of research along with professional daily care of the animals and aquarium systems. The facility can meet a wide range of needs, from one-off experiments of limited scope, to long-term maintenance of dozens of transgenic and/or mutant lines.

Access is available to all members of the MIT community, to the extent permitted by available capacity.  In special circumstances, access may be available to non-MIT users (details available on request from the Facility Coordinator).

To discuss how we can help assist your research, have a tour of the facility, or merely discuss whether zebrafish could be a suitable model organism for your research questions, feel free to contact the Facility Technical Director.
