9th Workshop on Innovative Mouse Models

The 9th Workshop on Innovative Mouse Models (IMM2017) will be held on 15-16 June, 2017.  Please mark these dates in your agenda. 

Topics: CRISPR/Cas9: basic biology and germ-line and somatic applications; Humanised mouse models; Embryo manipulation; Imaging; iPS and ES cells

The primary goal of this two-day workshop is bringing together a diverse group of scientists interested in advanced genome alteration approaches in the mouse, including key developers of emerging technologies as well as researchers who wish to apply and assess these new approaches. The workshop will encourage an in-depth and unvarnished discussion of these technologies and novel developments in a 2-day program with a series of invited speakers and presentations selected from submitted abstracts

 We hope to meet you all at IMM 2017 in Leiden, The Netherlands on June 15 and 16.

Registration is closed
