Abstract

The zebrafish has attracted interest from both the scientific and general press owing to its transition from a model of developmental biology to a tool for biomedical and preclinical studies. In this brief review, we summarise the advantages of a unique model organism and outline some of its recent contributions to the understanding of vascular development and remodelling.
