Researchers invited to join Zebrafish Symposium at UMaine on July 13

The diminutive, transparent zebrafish powers discoveries that may ultimately unveil new ways to diagnose, prevent and treat human diseases. Zebrafish and zebrafish-curious researchers are invited to join the Zebrafish Symposium from 9 a.m.–4:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 13 in Room 57 of Stodder Hall at the University of Maine.

Scientists from UMaine, the Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory, the University of New England, Bowdoin College and Bates College will present talks and host poster sessions. Participants will discuss research techniques, challenges and collaboration opportunities related to zebrafish.  

The event is sponsored by the University of Maine’s Institute of Medicine and the UMaine COBRE project grant.

The event is free, but advance registration is required. Registration is available online. For more information or to request a reasonable accommodation, contact Robert Wheeler at
