Zebrafish Got Spicy: V Course and Symposium of the Latin American Zebrafish Network

Aldana P. David, Brenda Delfín, Magela Rodao, and Roberto Rodríguez-Ortiz

Published Online: 4 Dec 2018

The V Latin American Zebrafish Network Course and Symposium was held from May 4 to 12, 2018 at the Institute of Biotechnology of the National Autonomous University of Mexico. A group of 19 students from eight different countries were selected and trained during a week in a variety of topics and techniques using zebrafish as a model, followed by a 2-day symposium. In this article, we want to point out not only the outstanding activities carried out during the course but also highlight the great experience, the knowledge, and the fantastic relationships we gained from those days.

Deadline for receipt of applications by local organisers: 29 November 2018

The ICGEB aims at strengthening the research capability of its Members through a comprehensive training programme and approach to promoting biotechnology internationally. The active participation of ICGEB Member States nationals in the ICGEB Meetings and Courses is therefore highly encouraged. For more information on the terms of participation and funding opportunities for this event please access the meeting website or contact the local organisers directly.

This Course aims at training a selected group of students, postdocs and junior investigators in theoretical and practical aspects of in vivo microscopy and strategies for the visualization and manipulation of forces in developing tissues. It offers a stimulating inter-disciplinary environment that gathers specialists from the fields of developmental biology, physics, computer science, & electrical engineering.

Optics and in vivo imaging, image processing and analysis, cell and tissue mechanics, physical modelling, cell migration and tissue morphogenesis, fish embryo models (zebrafish, killifish).

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
