The Wageningen fish immunology / vaccination workshops have been organised annually since 1998. Typically, the workshops are characterised by one-hour presentations given by experienced lecturers, taking time to thoroughly introduce each subject. The workshops have been adopted by the International Society for Fish and Shellfish Immunology (ISFSI). This year’s (2018) subject is FISH IMMUNOLOGY.

The 19th - 2018 workshop includes two afternoons with a choice between hands-on practicals or updates on recent molecular advances in transcriptome analysis and genome analysis. Further, participants are asked to send an abstract of their research plans and to present a poster, with the best one awarded the poster prize. The official workshop language is English.

 

OBJECTIVE

The objective of the present workshop is to provide participants with advanced knowledge, both theoretical and practical, on the immune system of fish. During the workshop we will discuss the latest insights in the evolution of the immune system and, in particular, modulation of fish immune responses.
