INFRAFRONTIER2020 Project | Trans-national Access call - April 2019

INFRAFRONTIER2020 Project | Trans-national Access call - April 2019


The goal of IMM2019 is to bring together a diverse group of scientists interested in all aspects of advanced mouse experiments within current ethical standards, including key developers of emerging technologies as well as researchers who wish to apply and assess these new approaches.

The workshop encourages an in-depth and unvarnished discussion of novel developments in the fields of mouse modeling, addressing the topics:

- How to make genetically-engineered mice in the CRISPR/Cas9 era?
- Novel in vivo applications of CRISPR/Cas9 technology
- Advanced imaging and phenotyping
- How to deal with the mouse microbiota?
- Closing debate: the future of mouse models in fundamental and/or translational research

IMM2019 is a unique opportunity for young researchers to share their experiences. Thus, we encourage you to submit an abstract! 4-5 abstracts will be selected for brief oral presentations.


We hope to meet you at the IMM2019 in Leiden!
