 Candidate Statement:

Unlike many in the zebrafish field, I was not trained as a zebrafish researcher but came to it after many years spent working on Xenopus, and I have become a passionate fan of the zebrafish field, not least because I greatly appreciate the openness and camaraderie of the zebrafish community. I was very impressed when I first started attending meetings how welcoming people were to outsiders like me, how willing people were to work together to build resources and share ideas, and the strong interest in promoting the careers of junior faculty. In order to contribute to the field I initiated the Protocols section of the ZFIN website and the TechnoFish section the Zebrafish journal (of which I am the editor-in-charge) because I wanted to help promote the sharing atmosphere of the community. On the IZFS board I would work to continue encouraging the aspects that first attracted me to the zebrafish community, although it is unimportant whether it is me or someone else on the board as long as the board is working to serve all members of our field, from the most junior to the most senior, and both those who do primarily research and those who have a major interest in using zebrafish as a teaching model.
