ORIP workshops on zebrafish husbandry standardization for research results
The Zebrafish Husbandry Workshop is delighted to bring together influential contributors to recent ORIP (Office of Research Infrastructure Programs) workshops on the standardization of zebrafish husbandry for research results:  Steve Watts chaired the organizing committee for the ORIP workshop on "Defining Nutrition in Zebrafish and other Biomedical Research Diets: Needs and Challenges," and Christian Lawrence is a leading expert on zebrafish husbandry.  Together, they will summarize the progress of the ORIP workshops and help the husbandry community understand its role in moving forward to standardization in zebrafish husbandry.
