Welcome to EuFishBioMed

The European Society for Fish Models in Biology and Medicine (EuFishBioMed) is a network devoted to fostering exchange of information, techniques, materials and expertise within and beyond the fish community. We are dedicated to promoting the further development of the technologies and versatilities of fish models in biomedical research and to make these accessible to other users, such as the medical, pharmaceutical and industrial communities.

Currently more than 360 Europe-based research groups are linked by this network. An overview, information on the specific expertise, and the contact details of each laboratory's PI (principal investigator) is offered via the coordinating institution (KIT: www.kit.edu)  upon request.

Survey Severity Classification of procedures in Zebrafish research

The FELASA Working Group on Severity Classification in Zebrafish and their Larvae wishes to get a better overview of procedures used in zebrafish and how they are currently classified in different countries in Europe and worldwide.

Would you be so kind to distribute the questionnaire link below to the right person and/or to click on the link and complete the questionnaire? It will take 5-10 min.



 We very much appreciate your contributions.
