EMBO workshop Beyond the standard

EMBO Workshop on Beyond the standard: Non-model vertebrates in biomedicine

The use of animal models is essential for novel scientific discoveries including the development of therapeutics to combat human disease. With the advent of new technologies the opportunities for non-model organisms in biomedicine have become increasingly accessible. This workshop will bring together international experts working with a range of non-traditional species within biomedicine with the aim to create new research bridges, focusing on vertebrates with unique sensory adaptions, social behaviors and metabolic adaptations for surviving in extreme environments. With novel technologies becoming readily available, this workshop is very timely to inspire researchers to look beyond the ‘standard’.
