5th European Prinzipal Investigator Meeting on Zebrafish Research

The 5th European Zebrafish Principal Investigators Meeting brings together principal investigators working at the forefront of zebrafish research.

The many plenary symposia of general interest and the specialised workshops provide unique opportunities for discussions, networking and creative thinking. Let’s
grab this opportunity to highlight recent discoveries, provide
perspectives to our community and establish strategic actions to advance
science and promote funding.

EZPM 2018 is co-organized by the CIBIO-Centre for Integrative Biology of the University of Trento and the European Society for Fish Models in Biology and Medicine and is set in the beautiful surroundings of the Dolomites, providing an idyllic environment to combine mental stimulation and nature exploration.

The Meeting will take place in Trento (Italy), March 20 to 23, 2018.

2nd International FishMed Conference on Zebrafish Research

The FishMed2018 is the third of a series of meetings organized by IIMCB that aims to share the most recent knowledge and developments in zebrafish research. The scientific presentations will cover the following topics: organs development and regeneration, neurobiology, genes regulation and disease models. The lectures were also related to technologies, including drug screening, sequencing, imaging and zebrafish husbandry system.

The 2nd International FishMed Conference on Zebrafish Research will be held at Conference Centre of the Nałęcz Institute of Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering PAN.

Focus on Microscopy

The FOM conferences constitute an effective meeting point for developers and users working in this rapidly evolving field, playing an important role in the dissemination of information about new developments. The FOM conferences are accompanied by a technical exhibition showing the recent technical developments in microscopy and associated techniques.

The conference will take place in Singapore, March 25 to 28, 2018.

Renaltract Conference

By doing the “International Conference on Nephrology and Therapeutics” we intend to divulge the state of art in renal tract development research. This will include presentations of the most up to date and pioneering research. We hope to create an exiting environment of scientific exchanging and discussion including high profile scientists, nephrologists and students. Ultimately, with this conference we expect to give a step forward to better understand and find new therapies of renal tract diseases.

4th Strategic Meeting for Medaka Research & Regional Fish Meeting

Medaka has been recognized as an ideal model system for biology and biomedical science. Medaka is, compared to other fish models, used in a wide variety of subjects, from basic biology to applied science. Because of this there are few opportunities for medaka researchers in the different fields to meet and get to know each other. In addition, the number of researchers using medaka has been growing rapidly during the last decade. This international strategic meeting for medaka research aimed at promoting networking among medaka researchers worldwide. Posters and oral talks from the representative PIs will be presented.
