Treventis was represented at the 4th Zebrafish for Personalized & Precision Medicine Conference, running from Sep 18-20, 2019, in Toronto, Ontario. In attendance was VP Research Marcia Taylor, who chaired one of the symposia.
The main objective of the conference is to apply research knowledge in zebrafish to applications that would allow for so-called ‘humanized’ disease models, as well as for the discovery of innovative disease treatment methods. Progress in precision genome editing holds the promise of being capable to significantly accelerate the development of personalized and precision medicines.
Treventis was a sponsor of this conference, having been a collaborator with several zebrafish experts on new disease models of protein misfolding disease.
