About the FishBone Workshop
Zebrafish, medaka, and other laboratory fish models hold unique potential to open ‎powerful avenues for skeletal research that are challenging in other vertebrates. Modern technologies have ‎brought forth new opportunities to identify genetic and phenotypic similarities between fish and mammalian skeletons, as well as translate across fish and human bone physiologies. These efforts by the community may be greatly aided by bringing together established and potential fish users with bone researchers from different disciplines.

The mission of FishBone is to bring together basic scientists and clinical researchers from the bone biomedical community together with fish skeletal biologists to facilitate cross-talk, establish foundations, and develop new experimental models of skeletal health.

To this end, FishBone is happy to announce FishBone 2021 to be held on June 18, 2021 as part of the European Calcified Tissue Society (ECTS) 2021 Digital Congress.

Topics
-Fish models of musculoskeletal disease
-Skeletal development
-Bone regeneration
-Bone/muscle adaptation
-Technologies for bone imaging
‎-Genetic engineering in fish

For­mat
FishBone 2021 will be a virtual, one-day event. The for­mat of Fish­Bone encour­ages inter­ac­tion between estab­lished and poten­tial fish users and ‎bone researchers from dif­fer­ent dis­ci­plines. All pre­sen­ters are encour­aged to pro­vide back­ground to bring par­tic­i­pants to a basic level of under­stand­ing, as well as to present new data.
