The "8th European Zebrafish Meeting" will be held at the Palau de Congressos de Catalunya, 9-13 July 2013.
It is intended to serve as a platform of communication for researchers working in zebrafish. The community using the zebrafish as a model system has expanded exponentially over the last decade and aso has, in parallel, the European biannual meeting.
Among many others, topics will cover new advances in life imaging, patterning, disease models, gene regulation and genomics, circuits and behaviour, drug screening and cancer.
Prof Sydney Brenner and Prof Denis Duboule, as keynote speakers working with other model organisms, will highlight their discoveries in C.elegans and mouse genetics.
Organisers include Berta Alsina, from the CEXS-UPF, as well as Angela Nieto (CSIC-Alicante), Paola Bovolenta (CSIC-Madrid), Jose Luis Gómez-Skarmeta (CSIC-Sevilla), Enrique Martin Blanco (CSIC,Barcelona) and Miguel Angel Pardo (Azti-Tecnalia, Derio).
