Zebrafish Disease Models - ZDM10

Zebrafish Disease Models (ZDM) meeting is the premier gathering for researchers who use the Zebrafish to study human disease. ZDM meetings recognize the need for relevant animal models to support mechanistic understanding of disease pathology and spur the development of innovative translational approaches.

Zebrafish is the only peer-reviewed journal to focus on the zebrafish, which has numerous valuable features as a model organism for the study of vertebrate development. Due to its prolific reproduction and the external development of the transparent embryo, the zebrafish is a prime model for genetic and developmental studies, as well as research in toxicology and genomics. While genetically more distant from humans, the vertebrate zebrafish nevertheless has comparable organs and tissues, such as heart, kidney, pancreas, bones, and cartilage. Zebrafish introduced the new section TechnoFish, which highlights these innovations for the general zebrafish community.
