when 20 May 2019 - 24 May 2019
language English
duration 1 week
credits 3 EC
fee EUR 360

This is the 3rd edition of the biannual summer course.
The school will expand your understanding of critical aspects related to mouse model for biomedical and basic research.
1-The thematic school is a 4-days advanced program which promises to accelerate shared conceptual scientific advances, to transfer innovative methods and techniques in the use of mice in biomedical research, from the design of experimental protocols until its realization and data analysis.
2-The school describes the state-of-the-art on a variety of fields, organized around 5 topics, namely mouse genetics, mutagenesis, mouse colony management, mouse clinical phenotyping and data management (statistical approaches).
3- Importantly, it will also be explained the new public web resources connecting model organisms to human diseases for a rich appreciation of the conservation in mammalian functional genomics.
Alternance between courses, lectures, workshop on case studies, and informal time to exchange

Course leader

The French infrastructure PHENOMIN and the European infrastructure INFRAFRONTIER

Target group

The school is intended for postdocs and PhDs, researchers, and clinicians who directly or indirectly use the mouse as a model for scientific research and wish to expand their understanding of animal research.
We encourage both industrial and academic researchers from across Europe to attend this school.
