Oliana’s research focuses on reproductive and developmental biology of fish models. Her main focus is on the effects of probiotics on fish welfare, in addition her group has substantial interest in reproductive toxicology to monitor environmental risk. A wide spectrum of aspects such as embryo development, reproduction, energy metabolism, immune system and genotoxic aspects, on different fish models are evaluated. Zebrafish model is actually used for studies on stress tolerance, growth, food intake, health status, toxicological screening and metabolic disorders.
