Zebrafish Conference Draws Students, Faculty

Posted on: May 2, 2019

Nearly 70 people from 12 different institutions attended the third annual CNY Zebrafish Conference at Syracuse University. The April 27th event drew graduate students, undergraduates and faculty from as far away as Canada for a program of talks and poster presentations. Meredith Professor Katharine (Kate) Lewis hosted the conference, as well as co-organized it with Jeff Amack, associate professor of cell and developmental biology at SUNY Upstate Medical University, and Jason Meyers, associate professor of biology and neuroscience at Colgate University. “This research increases our knowledge of a wide range of important biological processes, and can be used to develop more effective treatments for human diseases,” she says.
