Dr. Corrales’ research interests include in general the study of adverse effects of environmental stressors on aquatic animals. More specifically, she is interested in studying how environmental contaminants and toxicants affect the immune system in fish and in turn alter susceptibility to infection and disease. She works with ecologically relevant fish species in addition to working with fish models such as zebrafish, which serves as both an ecologically relevant model and human health model.
Keywords that describe her work: impacts of contaminants and environmental stressors on aquatic organisms, ecotoxicology, aquatic animal health, fish toxicology, immunotoxicology, coastal ecosystem health, fish models for human health and disease.
