About ZII.

Zebrafish infection research has seen an exciting gain in momentum over recent years.  We therefore organise a one-day event each year to maintain this exciting network of scientists.

Zebrafish infection research has a strong and well-connected community within the UK and Europe. This meeting brings together these internationally recognised research leaders and groups to to create a strong community that can push the field forward. We aim to maintain a "local-feel" international zebrafish infection and immunity community that meets annually to exchange science and tools and that inspires national training networks.


This year we are super excited to team up with Zebrafish Disease Models Society to hold a joint meeting the day after ZDM17. We sincerely hope you can stay the extra day for a relaxed and informal meeting on all things Infection and Immunity!
