See the program, international speakers, and abstract & registration details on our website: http://www.zebrafishcentre.com/conference/

Deadline for abstracts is July 20th. Trainee travel and poster awards available. Additional travel awards available for trainees from University of Toronto and its affiliated hospitals/institutions.

Early registration ends Sept. 1st. However, space for the conference and the networking dinner cruise is limited.

The goal of this conference is to bring together scientists from both biological and medical research fields to accelerate the translational process of zebrafish-based knowledge to clinical applications. This will include generation of more predictive “humanizing” disease models, dissection of disease mechanisms and discovery of new disease treatment methods.

We have assembled a group of expert scientists to give plenary lectures in both personalized medicine and cutting edge zebrafish research. Three main scientific research sessions include: (1) Mutagenesis & Disease Modeling, (2) Chemical Biology, Pharmacogenomics & Drug Discovery, and (3) Mechanisms of Development & Organ Dysfunction.

We whole-heartedly welcome you to join us in Toronto for an exciting conference, and please don’t miss the Networking & Dinner Cruise social activity on the 18th.
