Zebrafish are a logical choice for many scientist to study neural development. They develop rapidly and share many genes with humans and model human biology closely. Therefore zebrafish and their larvae are often used for the investigation of behavioral changes induced by novel drugs, toxins, or other substances. Having many advantages over rodent models (think fast reproduction and ease of genetic manipulation), zebrafish play an important role in the development of new transgenic and knockout models, drug discovery, behavioral pharmacology, and safety pharmacology.
Meet Noldus at these zebrafish meetings!
Given their starring role in behavioral research it not surprising that there are plenty of conferences dedicated to zebrafish related research! These zebrafish conferences and meetings are coming up in 2017 and 2018.
Nordic Zebrafish meeting 2017
14-15 September 2017 in Uppsala, Sweden
The Nordic Zebrafish meeting 2017 takes place this September. Swedish Uppsala will be the setting for the Nordic Countries Meeting on zebrafish as a model for development and disease. Aim of the meeting is to create a network of zebrafish researchers in the Nordic countries, increase sharing of knowledge and facilitate interactions among scientists in Northern Europe who use the zebrafish as a model in their research.
3rd Zebrafish for Personalized/Precision Medicine Conference
27-29 September 2017 in Toronto, Canada
The third edition of this Canadian conference brings together scientists from both biological and medical research fields. Their aim: to accelerate the translational process of zebrafish-based knowledge to clinical applications, including a generation of more predictive “humanized” disease models, dissection of disease mechanisms and the discovery of new disease treatment methods.
Noldus is one of the platinum sponsors at the ZPPM Conference so make sure to visit!

EZPM 2018 - 5th European Zebrafish Principal Investigator Meeting
20-23 March 2018 in Trento, Italy
Organized by the Centre for Integrative Biology of the University of Trento (CIBIO) and the European Society for Fish Models in Biology and Medicine, the setting of this EZPM 2018 meeting - the surroundings of the Dolomites - are definitely providing an great environment to combine mental stimulation and nature exploration.
FishMed 2018 - 2nd International FishMed Conference on Zebrafish Research
25-27 March 2018 in Warsaw, Poland
The 2nd International FishMed Conference on Zebrafish Research is organized next spring in Warsaw, Poland. Over 3 days, participants will discuss and hear about zebrafish research „from gene to structure”.
ZDG 2018 - 13th International Conference on Zebrafish Development and Genetics
20-24 June 2018 in Madison, USA
Next year the International Zebrafish Conference (IZFC; previously known as the International Conference on Zebrafish Development and Genetics) will be returning to its long-time home in Madison, Wisconsin in June, 2018. No doubt that the program will highlight the latest zebrafish research advances where participants will hear about the newest cutting edge zebrafish research tools and technologies.
Will we meet you at any of these zebrafish conferences?
