We thank all participants for their  contributions to IAFSB 2022
The next  IAFSB is planed  for  2024, as  always, excellent  science  at  a  beautiful location.
We invite participants to contribute  to a special volume that will be published in collaboration with Biomedaqu (see the IAFSB publication tab).

IAFSB 2022
Sixth Conference: Interdisciplinary Approaches in Fish Skeletal Biology, Olhão, Algarve, Portugal. November 9-12

From Fossils to Farming to Biomedical Research.
From Sharks to Salmon and Zebrafish.
As always: Excellent 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, Paleontology, Biomedical Sciences and Regenerative Medicine, Ichthyology and Systematics, Functional Anatomy and Biomechanics, Aquaculture, Fish Pathology, Fish Nutrition, and others.

The emphasis of IAFSB is to facilitate discussions, to promote the exchange of ideas and concepts during, before and after the sessions. The conference will be live (no streaming, no online contributions). IAFSB typically accommodates up to 100 participants.

Key Note Lectures:
Mélanie Debiais-Thibaud, University of Montpellier, France
…about skeletal tissues in cartilaginous fishes 
Ann Huysseune, Ghent Univ. Belgium & Charles Univ., Czech Republic
…about development and evolutionary origin of the vertebrate dentition
Antonella Forlino, University of Pavia, Italy
…about zebrafish as  a  model for  osteogenesis imperfecta
