For all that can not wait until 2021 here is a great 2019 conference with  exciting contributions about Chondrichthyan Skeletal Biology.
Comparative Cartilage Biology meeting (24-26 June in Banyuls, France)

The sixth conference “Interdisciplinary Approaches in Fish Skeletal Biology” will be held  in April 2021.

IAFSB Conferences: Great Science at a Beautiful Location
IAFSB conferences promote the dialogue between experts from different disciplines that have a common interest in fish skeletal research and comparative skeletal biology. Participants come from disciplines such as Evolution and Development, Developmental Genomics and Proteomics, Biomedical Sciences and Regenerative Medicine, Ichthyology and Systematics, Functional Anatomy and Biomechanics, Aquaculture and Nutrition, and others.

The emphasis of the conference is to facilitate discussions, to exchange ideas and concepts. The location of the conference is ideal for this purpose. A historic fishing village turned into a hotel where we can accommodate about 100 participants.  IAFSB on Facebook

PhD positions  in Fish Skeletal Research

a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (MCSA-ITN) with the primary research aim to create an innovative expertise combining research in skeletal biology of aquaculture fish species with that in biomedical models and humans. In total, 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) will be appointed by the BioMedaqu consortium for 36 months each.
