July 2023 Zebrafish Symposium

July 13, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Zebrafish play a crucial role in modeling human disease, from childhood developmental diseases and muscular dystrophy to immune responses against bacteria, fungi and viruses. Five biomedical research laboratories at UMaine, and many throughout the state, lean heavily on this transparent fish to catalyze discoveries pointing the ways to new ways to diagnose, prevent and treat human diseases. Zebrafish researchers and zebrafish-curious researchers will get  together for a day of talks and posters on Thursday, July 13 at UMaine. This meeting will drive collaboration on techniques and scientific problems by identifying overlapping interests and sharing methods for zebrafish research. The mini-symposium is sponsored by the University of Maine’s Institute of Medicine and the UMaine COBRE project grant.
