The Diamond


The Zebrafish Infection Uk workshop will highlight the potential of the zebrafish model to study infections and dissect host-pathogen interactions as well as inflammation and immunity mechanisms.

Keynote Speakers 2018:

Dr Mahdad Noursadeghi (UCL)

Dr Rob Fagan (UoS)

We are delighted to announce that we have secured Dr Mahdad Noursadeghi from UCL and Dr Rob Fagan from the Florey Institute at the University of Sheffield to give exciting talks about their infection and immunity research from a clinical and a microbiology perspective. We've decided to have inspiring non-zebrafish keynotes this year to put our research into the bigger picture and remind us that we're not interested in curing fish of disease, but rather to develop better in vivo understanding of human disease!

What is Zebrafish Infection UK about?

Zebrafish Infection UK aims to assemble the UK zebrafish community to develop an interactive zebrafish infection biology network.
