ZF Eye Meeting Freiburg - Abstract deadline postponed to 15th July 2018 please register NOW

posted Jun 29, 2018, 12:04 AM by Flavio Zolessi

Dear colleagues
We warmly invite you to register for our interdisciplinary meeting, There are still open places. Meet the clinicians:
Zebrafish Models for Human Eye Diseases, Freiburg 14th-15th Sept 2018
All details can be found here: <>
Abstract deadline: 15th July 2018 (deadline postponed!)
Please register until: 31st July 2018

Invited speakers:
Hélène Dollfus, Wolfgang Driever, Peter Charbel-Issa, Sascha Fauser, Breandán Kennedy, Brian Link, Stephan Neuhauss, Ernst Tamm, Monte Westerfield

In ophthalmology, clinician scientists may be unaware of the many possibilities provided by zebrafish models. On the other hand zebrafish researchers may be unexposed to pressing clinical research questions. The aim of the meeting is to bring researchers using the zebrafish model closer to the medical community. At the same time, the meeting shall introduce the virtues of the zebrafish model to clinical researchers. Keynote lectures will cover various aspects of zebrafish eye research. This will be complemented by presentations addressing research on human eye diseases with high clinical relevance. In addition, short talks and poster presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts of meeting participants.

Best regards

COURSE: Genome Editing and Synthetic Biology

posted Jan 21, 2016, 11:52 AM by Flavio Zolessi

Practical course and symposium, May 14-20, 2016.
Center for Genome Regulation. Facultad de Ciencias, Universidad de Chile.

The advent of genome editing technologies and articficial
transcriptional regulators have revolutionized biology and
biotechnology. In this course, techniques and applications will
be discussed and exemplified with hands on experiments in
model organisms (bacteria, Drosophila and zebrafish).
Application to the course is open to graduate students, postdocs
and young PIs; the symposium is open to the community; there
are no registration fees but application to attend is required.
