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

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.

10th Workshop on Innovative Mouse Models IMM2019

June 19 - 21, 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.


Registration, Detail information:

  • IMM2019 can accommodate 250 participants.
  • We encourage you to submit an abstract, even if your work is still in an exploratory phase. 4-5 abstracts will be selected for a short talk. Selected participants will be informed by the end of May 2019.

Ainsi, comme chaque année, le congrès annuel rassemblera les acteurs de l'histologie et histotechnologie et traitera aussi bien des méthodologies hitologiques originales que de l'immuno-oncologie pre-clinique, du multiplexage en immuno-histologie, ou encore de l'imagerie appliquée en histologie. La 32 ieme édition se tiendra, à Strasbourg, du 20 au 21 juin 2019.

PHENOMIN-ICS sera présent. H Jacobs et O. wendling, co-responsables de la plateforme d'histopathologie  seront présents et disposnibles pour échanger autour des  techniques en histologie qui font avancer vos projets.
