Professional Development

Trainee Professional Development Workshops 

Wednesday, June 12, 2019, 9:00 – 16:50
The Trainee Professional Development shops are devoted to scientific and career development activities for trainees (Primarily graduate students and postdocs). The day consists of a keynote address, a postdoc symposium, an activity consisting of one-on-one blitz discussions, and a series of workshops on various topics. The goal of the Trainee Professional Development Day is to allow the next generation of zebrafish researchers to learn from and interact with faculty members in a more informal and intimate setting than that allowed by the main conference.

Junior Faculty Workshops 

Wednesday, June 12, 2019, 12:30  – 16:50
The goal of the Junior Faculty Workshops, which are open to investigators within 8 years of obtaining a faculty position, is to foster the growth and success rate of the next generation of zebrafish researchers by learning from and interacting with established faculty members in a more informal and intimate setting than that allowed by the main conference. A panel of experienced members of the zebrafish field will participate in each meeting, to provide tips and advice to junior faculty members and answer questions.

Meet the Professors 

Thursday, June 13 - Saturday, June 15, 10:30 -11:00
