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.
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.
