Zebrafish Hibernation Could Help Humans Reach Mars

New research led by Queen’s University Belfast has shown the zebrafish could help humans reach Mars by understanding how a form of hibernation known as induced torpor (a state of reduced metabolic activity) may provide radio-protective effects. Hibernation is a physiological condition found in many species that protects them against harsh conditions, such as foodContinue reading “Zebrafish Hibernation Could Help Humans Reach Mars”
