UniMi team attended the last Conference of the European Aquaculture Society in Berlin (Germany), presenting a poster entitled “QUANTITATIVE CHARACTERIZATION OF THE RAINBOW TROUT (Oncorhynchus Mykiss) INTESTINAL EPITHELIUM IN RESPONSE TO DIET CHANGES DURING THE FIRST YEAR OF DEVELOPMENT”.

The work has allowed to improve the knowledge about morphological changes of the intestinal Rainbow trout epithelium at different stages of development and to validate the expression of intestinal stem cell markers that can be used as molecular tools for their characterization. These results represent important information to be used for addressing the goals of Fish-AI project.

UniMi and Norwegian University teams had the opportunity to get together at EAS 2019

The meeting was also a useful moment to get updated about the research in aquaculture and to meet international experts.
