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
