March 4, 2019 CALL

French Foundation for Rare Diseases (Fondation maladies rares) - 2019 Call ‘Development of experimental models for rare diseases’

French Foundation for Rare Diseases (Fondation maladies rares) - 2019 Call

Development of new experimental models of rare diseases (animal models), and in vitro models throught Human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines

Genome editing and advances in associated methodologies represent a technological revolution that extend opportunities in rare diseases research and new avenues towards addressing pathophysiological and therapeutic approaches. This call aims to give a significant boost to the development of new experimental models of rare diseases, in order to:

  • improve the understanding of molecular and cellular mechanisms leading to pathological conditions related to a rare disease,
  • provide evidence for therapeutic proofs of principle that may eventually lead to treatment.

In collaboration with PHENOMIN-ICS

Proposal submission on line - dead line: April 4th 2019

INFRAFRONTIER H2020- Precision mammalian model development / rat models service call

INFRAFRONTIER Research Infrastructure / INFRAFRONTIER2020 Project - Trans-national Access call - January 2019

Precision rat model development

This Trans-national Access call of the INFRAFRONTIER2020 project supports a total of 3 precision rat model development projects. A complementary call provides support for 12 customised mouse model development projects.

  • Free-of-charge rat model development service implemented as a Trans-national Access activity supporting a total of 3 projects in this call.
  • The access unit offered covers the production of a single F1 genome-edited rat line (at least one individual of a F1 genome edited rat line will be provided).
  • The model development service using genome editing involves project design, preparation of sgRNAs and Cas9 mRNA/protein, and injection into zygotes to generate F0 founder mutant animals (Sprague Dawley genetic background).Selected F0 animals (very often mosaic) will be bred to germ line to produce F1 genome edited animals. Possible allele types that can be generated are indels, exon deletions (< 10kb) and point mutation insertions.

In collaboration with PHENOMIN-ICS

Proposal submission to by 15 February 2019. (Proposal evaluation from 15 February 2019 to 15 March 2019)

3rd European Advanced School for Mouse Phenogenomics

May 20 - 24, 2019, Goersdorf, Alsace, France

Would you like to learn how to choose, create and analyse your best mouse model?

Do you have a sufficient background in mouse functional genomics to lead as best your research?

PHENOMIN, in collaboration with Infrafrontier, supports researchers who use mouse models by giving us the opportunity to take part to the biennial Edition of the Advanced School in Mouse Phenogenomics.

  • Come to the heart of Europe to be involved - together with other students and researchers from all over the world - in opened discussion, in constructive analysis of your own research and in building conceptual scientific advances.
  • The school covers the different fields of mouse phenogenomics, ranging through 5 topics from state-of-the-art mouse genetics, mutagenesis, mouse colony management, phenotyping human diseases and data management (statistical approaches).
  • This unique international event will provide the attendees with a wealth of information on good practices in the use of mouse model (experimental design, ethics, regulations, analysis, data and resources ...) to support attendees in their research.
