CANCELLED - 9th Annual International Zebrafish Husbandry Course

Unfortunately, given the current situation related to the Coronavirus pandemic, we are forced to cancel the 9th Annual International Zebrafish Husbandry Course, scheduled for Fall this year.

Sadly enough and despite all our attempts to keep this important appointment alive, we have reached the common decision not to organize this event because of a highly unpredictable situation in relation to public health, funds availability and travel possibilities.

Organizers and speakers are saving all innovative ideas and the overflowing passion that has always distinguished us for an unforgettable 2021 course!
