Committees and Working Groups


Zebrafish Nomenclature Committee (ZNC)

Advisory Group on Intellectual Property

Based on the enthusiasm of commercializing zebrafish research, we have set up an Advisory Committee for intellectual property. We will keep an updated list of our names on the web to help people initiate the process of invention disclosure, as well as finding opportunities for company involvement.
