We are pleased to invite you to the 1st Italian Zebrafish Meeting (ZFIM 2017) that will be held on February 2-3, 2017, in Padua. This meeting will highlight and discuss emerging aspects of zebrafish research and promote networking among Italian researchers while trying to disseminate the experience and philosophy of the European society (Eufishbiomed). Being the first of such local meetings in Italy, it is a great opportunity to meet colleagues and students, share knowledges and practical experiences, coordinate national grant opportunities and local databases for fish lines and reagents.
