FishBone 2017 will be a day-long workshop on Friday May 12, 2017 as part of the ECTS Pre-Congress Program. The workshop will begin in the morning and end in the evening, with several breaks in between.

This day-long workshop is open to clinicians, biologists and geneticists dedicated to bone research, with a focus on fish models of human skeletal disease. The workshop seeks to encour­age 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.
