Fish and Amphibian Embryos as Alternative Models in toxicology and teratology

Since many years, this annual international conference gathers experts from academia, governments and industry to deal with issues within toxicology of societal importance and international regulation. Peter Aleström and Jorke Kamstra participated with one invited keynote lecture and one oral and one poster presentation at the Developmental toxicity and imaging session. Both lectures and poster communicated CERAD related results on epigenetic and transgenerational effects following gamma radiation and secondary stressor exposed zebrafish, and received much positive feedback. In general, this conference highlighted the importance of the use of zebrafish as a model in Adverse Outcome Pathways and we emphasized the role of epigenetic landscape in this model.
