10th workshop on Innovative Mouse Models


19-21 June 2019 Leiden, the Netherlands
On 19-21 June 2019, the Netherlands Cancer Institute and the Leiden University Medical Center organize the 10th edition of the workshop on Innovative Mouse Models (IMM2019) in Leiden, the Netherlands.

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

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. Among the participants are 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 a 3-day program with a series of invited speakers and presentations selected from submitted abstracts. IMM2019 is a unique opportunity for young researchers to share their experiences by means of a poster or brief oral presentation with a highly specialized audience.

IMM2019 will be held in the historic city of Leiden.
This beautiful city is considered one large open-air museum.
Leiden's entire downtown area is a historic monument in its entirety. Located within such a short distance from one another, a walk along the canals to view the most conspicuous monuments hardly takes any effort and is well worth the time!
