The Center for Cancer Research announces a course for researchers using animal models: Mouse Research Models (MRM) or Mouse 101

 

Go to Registration Page

 

Overview:
Mouse research models play an important role in cancer research. Technologies available today allow researchers to create mouse models of cancer by transferring new genes into animals or inactivating existing genes. Mouse research models can be used to study the changes associated with tumor development, test new approaches to detection and diagnosis and to evaluate prevention and treatment strategies. MRM/Mouse 101 will provide an overview of the procedures used at NIH to conduct research using mice and explore how mouse research models can be used in cancer research. The course is designed for fellows, technicians, and investigators who plan to conduct experiments using mouse research models at NIH.

Location and Time:
The MRM course will be held on May 22, May 29, June 5 and June 12 from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM in Building 45, Natcher Conference Center, Balcony B with videoconferencing to the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research (FNL), Building 549 Conference Room C.

Several hands-on training modules in various common mouse techniques will be offered to small groups on additional dates to be announced at the course.

Archived Presentations:
The presentations included in this course will be recorded and archived at a later date.

Registration:
Register by clicking on the link at the top of the page. The deadline for registration is May 16, 2018.
