N1 - Funding Information: Lastly, we wish to acknowledge those who supported this conference which was hosted at the University of Georgia. This meeting would not have been possible without the generous support of the National Center for Research Resources and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences of the NIH, the Roy F. and Joann Cole Mitte Foundation, the Marine and Freshwater Biomedical Sciences Center at Oregon State University, the Office of the Vice President for Research and the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources of the University of Georgia. We would especially like to thank the members of the organizing committee, Ron Walter (Texas State University), James Lauderdale (University of Georgia), Marjorie Oleksiak (University of Miami) and Dave Williams (Oregon State University). Funding Information: The meetings in this series on aquatic animal models of human disease have provided a unique forum for investigators working in a diverse range of disciplines to exchange information derived from these aquatic model systems and to discuss priorities for development and dissemination of resources essential to advancement of research using these models. Such resources include animal stocks, inbred, transgenic and mutant lines, cDNA and BAC libraries, microarrays, antibodies and cell lines. Development and dissemination of such resources are facilitated by the existence of a number of resource centers, funded by the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) of NIH as well as a by a trans-NIH initiative to support development of tools for zebrafish research. Resource centers currently in place involving aquatic organisms include the National Resource for Zebrafish, the Xiphophorous Genetic Stock Center, the National Resource for Aplysia (sea hares used for neurophysiological research), the National Resource Center for Cephalopods (providing squid and octopus), the Sea Urchin Genome Resource and the Ambystoma Resource for Model Amphibians (providing animal and genomic resources for research using salamanders). We believe that conferences such as the ones in this series can improve efficiency of resource sharing and increase awareness of the usefulness of these models and thereby help generate new opportunities for fish and other aquatic models to be used in biomedical research.
