Webinar 1: Introduction to Zebrafish Screening
February 2, 2017 — 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. Eastern Time
The small size and rapid development of the zebrafish make it a useful vertebrate model for assessing potential effects of chemicals on development in a medium to high-throughput manner. However, a lack of harmonization in several key protocol components hinders the broader adoption of the zebrafish model for toxicological screening. In an effort to address this issue, NTP launched the Systematic Evaluation of the Application of Zebrafish in Toxicology (SEAZIT) program.
SEAZIT is addressing the issues of variability among laboratories in the endpoints measured, as well as the nomenclature used for each endpoint. NICEATM is organizing a webinar series in support of the SEAZIT program that will consider how these issues might be addressed by implementation of standardized nomenclature systems, also known as ontologies.
All webinars will begin at 11:30 a.m. Eastern Standard Time.
The webinars are free and open to the public, but registration is required to attend. Registration for any webinar will automatically register the participant for all subsequent webinars. Additional details about the webinars will be posted on this page when available.
