Biography Carlo C. Lazado

I am passionate to understand the fundamental biological processes that make fish one of the most interesting model species to study vertebrate biology. In particular, I am interested in fish immunity, circadian rhythms and plasticity. I am using the basic knowledge of these biological processes to explore the underpinnings of how the fish respond to the changes in the environment, operational practices and nutrition. I am addressing questions in these topics by integrating various disciplines including immunology, circadian biology, nutrition, physiology, microbiology and infection biology.

My research is aimed at commercially important fish species. Presently, all of the research activities are directed at Atlantic salmon, the key aquaculture species in Norway. I have worked with other commercially relevant fish species as well such as Atlantic cod, rainbow trout, permit and Nile tilapia. I am also interested in using zebrafish as a convenient model species.
