""Stephen A Watts, Ph.D, a professor in the Department of Biology, has been selected to chair the organizing committee for the ORIP/DPCPSI/OD-NIH workshop on “Defining Nutrition in Zebrafish and other Biomedical Research Diets: Needs and Challenges.”

The Office of Research Infrastructure (ORIP) at NIH is supporting research community efforts to improve lab animal nutrition and increase rigor and reproducibility in biomedical research. Watts and the committee will address further development of standardized diets and feed management strategies which promote healthy animal husbandry, thus improving experimental design and outcomes.

A workshop will be held at NIH in July 2018 to develop a roadmap for enhancing nutritional competency in biomedical research.
