THE 2ND MALAYSIA ZEBRAFISH DISEASE MODEL WORKSHOP 2017 (MZDM2017)
Date: 
02 Oct 2017 to 04 Oct 2017
Location: 
Monash University Malaysia
Organized by: 
Zebrafish researchers community in Malaysia
Zebrafish is gaining prominence as an important vertebrate model for investigating various human diseases. The number of researchers using zebrafish models has been dramatically increasing throughout the world including Malaysia. We had previously organized the 1st Malaysia Zebrafish Disease Model Workshop in 2015. The event attracted over 70 participants from local and international Universities and institutes. Despite the high interest in the zebrafish model among researchers in Malaysia, many researchers in Malaysia still do not have access to zebrafish techniques/tools and thus may not be utilizing the model to its fullest potential. This workshop aims to provide a platform for Malaysian researchers and students who are currently working or planning to work with the zebrafish model to learn the latest research techniques using zebrafish. The workshop is structured around research seminars and lectures, along with hands-on sessions conducted by international and local experts. This workshop will also promote collaboration within the zebrafish researchers’ community in Malaysia.
