BioMedaqu Summer School no. 2 'Monitoring of Fish Skeletal Anomalies'

23‐24‐25, 30 September 2019

Organizers: Clara Boglione (Università di Roma Tor Vergata), Oliana Carnevali (Università Politecnica delle Marche), Andrea Fabris (Associazione PiscicoltoriItaliani)
In the frame of BioMedaqu Project, the University of Rome Tor Vergata, the Politecnica delle Marche and the Italian Association of Aquaculturists organize a training course on the most adequate procedures for monitoring of fish skeletal anomalies.

BioMedaqu Project (https:// is a Marie Sklodowska‐Curie Innovative Training Network (MCSAITN) with the aim of creating an innovative expertise combining research in skeletal biology of aquaculture fish species with that in biomedical models and humans.
Topics to be covered include:

  • Differences in skeletal tissues among basal and derived teleosts and mammalians
  • Sampling methodologies, staining protocols and procedures
  • Survey, data input
  • Data analyses

The course will comprise 11 lectures and 3 practical (laboratory, computer) lessons.
Target group: The course is directed to PhD students, researchers or professionals from the industry interested in skeletal anomalies in reared and model fish.
Location: Laboratory of Experimental Ecology and Aquaculture – University of Rome Tor Vergata.
Registration deadline: July 30th 2019
