Welcome to the Fish Workshop hosted by the Cell Biology & Immunology group at Wageningen University & Research. This website provides information and registration opportunities.
The Wageningen fish immunology / vaccination workshops have been organised annually since 1998. Typically, the workshops are characterised by one-hour presentations given by experienced lecturers, taking time to thoroughly introduce each subject. The workshops have been adopted by the International Society for Fish and Shellfish Immunology (ISFSI). This year’s (2017) subject is FISH IMMUNOLOGY / VACCINATION.
The 18th - 2017 workshop is co-sponsored by TARGETFISH, a large collaborative project funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme for Research and technological Development.
The workshop includes two afternoons with a choice between hands-on practicals or updates on recent molecular advances in transcriptome analysis and genome analysis. Further, participants are asked to send an abstract of their research plans and to present a poster, with the best one awarded the poster prize. The official workshop language is .
The objective of the present workshop is to provide participants with advanced knowledge, both theoretical and practical, on the immune system of fish. During the workshop we will discuss the latest insights in the evolution of the immune system and, in particular, fish vaccination.
The level of the workshop is targeting academic and company researchers as well as management staff in the aquaculture industry. We more than welcome PhD students, who have a reduced registration fee.
