Dear All

We are looking forward to an exciting UK SouthWest Zebrafish Meeting at the 11 Sep 2020!

If you have not already, register and also submit your abstracts for either talks or posters. Talks and posters will be given to students, early career researchers and technicians. Our deadline for abstract submission is Friday 24th July, so submit your abstracts on our website: On the website you will find the online registration form, as well as the abstract form to fill out and upload.

Virtual Meeting:

We have been working behind the scenes to build our virtual meeting! We are planning to hold the meeting via a central hub on This means we can host an online poster exhibition, secure to all delegates, where you will be able to browse and read posters, leave comments and interact with presenters and crucially vote for ‘best poster’! Prizes will be awarded for best talks and posters! We will also use Zoom to host our series of talks, break-out sessions, talks from sponsors, as well as an online ‘Zebrafish Zoom Café’ for breaks and general discussion. More details to come!

New Sponsors:

Good news! We can now confirm our meeting will be free from any registration fees for delegates. We can now confirm we have been kindly sponsored by The Company of Biologists, through a Scientific Meeting Grant, so we can waive registration fees. We can also announce we are kindly sponsored by Tecniplast and DanioLabs.

Special Issue:

We would like to announce that a Special Issue of ‘Histochemistry and Cell Biology’ focussing on ‘In vivo cell biology in zebrafish’ will accompany the meeting. Please email us for further details. We are looking forward to hearing from you with research!

Please pass this information on to anyone you think may be interested and feel free to tweet about the event using #SWZM20 and follow us on Twitter @Swzm20!

Looking forward to hearing from you all,

Steffen, Lucy, Holly, Michael, Josh, Chengting & Yosuke
