George Streisinger Award

The International Zebrafish Society has established the George Streisinger Award for a senior investigator who has made outstanding and continued contributions to the advancement of the zebrafish field. George Streisinger (1927-1984) was the founding father of zebrafish research. Working at the University of Oregon in the 1970s and early 1980s, George Streisinger established a zebrafish research colony and developed the first methods for mutagenesis and mutant screening with the goal of studying the development of the nervous system through genetic analysis. George Streisinger’s enthusiasm for the zebrafish and its potential for understanding vertebrate development was infectious. After his untimely death in 1984, his work on this still-nascent model organism was continued and taken in new directions by colleagues at the University of Oregon and around the world. The George Streisinger Award recognizes a senior investigator who, like George himself, has done sustained and foundational work that has opened new possibilities within the zebrafish field that benefit all of our research today.
Contributions may be in the form of conceptual advances that have opened important new research directions and/or the development of tools or resources that have been transformative in enabling new research possibilities. The 2017 awardee will be recognized at the 10th European Zebrafish Meeting in Budapest, Hungary, July 3-7, 2017.

Nominations

Members of the zebrafish community are invited to submit nominations for the Streisinger Award. Nominations must be submitted by e-mail with the subject line “Streisinger Award” by February 6, 2017 to mdezhbod@izfs.org. Submit application in a single PDF file that includes:


1. A statement (up to one page) written by the nominator describing the key contributions of the nominee to the field. The statement must be co-signed by two or more members of the community who support the nomination.
2. A list of up to ten publications or links to online resources or databases that illustrate the central contributions of the nominee to the field.

Fish model species in human and environmental toxicology

  

CHAIRS: Jessica Legradi, Riccardo Massei, Marek Pípal

 

Fish models are commonly used in human and eco-toxicity testing to investigate the impact of chemicals on whole organisms. Many important biological functions are conserved between fish species and humans. Therefore fish have a wide utility domain, spanning from basic developmental biology, neurobiology, endocrinology to immunology. The small size of some available fish species including the zebrafish (Danio rerio) or medaka (Oryzias latipes) and their robust nature makes them ideally suited for application in automated high throughput screens. Furthermore, early life stages of these species offer all the key attributes of a complex in vivo system (e.g. including metabolism), as well as attributes of in vitro assays, as tests can be carried out in multiwell plates formats with small sample volumes and run in comparatively short periods of time. These attributes make them well suited for toxicity testing of environmental extracts and in effect directed analysis (EDA) to detect unknown contaminants in complex samples. Research on fish over the last decade has been greatly facilitated by the availability of sequenced genomes, which are available for over twelve species with more pending. This facility together with advances in genetic and epigenetic studies, including gene knockout and transgenesis technologies, is greatly facilitating understanding of the molecular mechanisms of toxicology. Due to the large similarity with other vertebrates, there is also a growing interest in the application of fish model species in human disease and development. Fish early life stages have been recently used in several cancer genetics studies and drug discovery tests. In the ecotox field fish are also studied outside of the laboratory in their native environment. Prominent models for native fish models are roach (Rutilus rutilus) and rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). Studying fish in their natural habitat allows to go further than simple dose-effect assessments. Within this session we intend to show recent developments in toxicological research using a variety of different fish model species, focusing on novel systems, endpoints, assays and testing strategies. Results of toxicity studies of single compounds as well as complex environmental samples are of interest. Effects on individual fish, multigenerational exposure effects, and population level impacts will be considered. We especially welcome presentations highlighting new analytical methods and techniques for contaminants or their metabolites in exposure media or fish. The session will be interdisciplinary and bring together researchers across a wide range of research areas with the view to enhance approaches in human and ecotoxicity testing.
