In April 2020, the International Zebrafish Society (IZFS) launched the IZFS Webinar Series. The series includes a variety of research and professional development topics. The content of the webinars is designed for researchers from every career level and to share the latest scientific findings, methods, technologies, and products to facilitate research. The format provides direct access to experts in the field in an interactive online setting.

Upcoming Webinars

Paper Writing

In this webinar, we plan to cover various aspects of manuscript submission and publication – from journal selection, manuscript and cover letter preparation and communications with the editor, through to revisions, rebuttals and finalisation of the article. We hope this will be an interactive session and encourage participants to submit questions in advance and contribute to the discussion.

Disease Modeling: Discovery and Modeling of Undiagnosed Human Diseases
April 20, 2021
11:00 am - 12:00 p.m. ET and
8:00 - 9:00 p.m. ET

There are more than 400 million people worldwide who suffer from undiagnosed diseases. Many of these diseases are extremely rare with as few as a single affected individual. Zebrafish play a central role in validation of unknown disease genes and elucidation of the underlying mechanisms of pathphysiology. In this webinar,  I will discuss our work as part of the Undiagnosed Diseases Network.
