16th International Zebrafish Conference

Also this year, the Institute of Cardiogenetics participated in the 16th International Zebrafish Conference (IZFC). 

The IZFS covers several different topics including “Brain and Behaviour”, “Muscular Skeletal and Connective Tissue”, “Disease Models and Mechanisms”, “Cancer and Growth Control”, “Morphogenesis”, “Polarity and Migration”, “Toxicology and many more topics”.


We have followed the different presentations with great pleasure and interest and were also able to gain some new insights.

We were able to present our recent findings in the field of COL6α2-related dystrophies in a zebrafish model via a poster. The poster was viewed over 200 times by the other conference participants. Afterwards, based on our poster presentation, we were contacted by a company to present one of their products.

We are already looking forward to the next conference.
