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)

INFRAFRONTIER2020 mouse axenic service call

In a Trans-national Access Call, Infrafrontier offers a service to derive germ-free mice for European researchers who study the role of the microbiome in metabolism, physiology, and immune function.

The `axenic´ service is free of charge. Access to the axenic service will be granted on the basis of scientific excellence and supports pilot projects for the derivation of-germ-free mice. Further breeding and characterisation of axenic mice or the development of gnotobiotic models can be offered on a fee-for-service or on a collaborative basis.

The 15th Transgenic Technology Meeting - TT2019

April 7 - 10, 2019, Kobe, Japan

The 2019 Transgenic Technology Meeting (TT2019) represents something of a milestone, the 15th holding of this event since its inception. Organiers are delighted that this memorable occasion for the International Society for Transgenic Technologies (ISTT) will be hosted in the city of Kobe, Japan, supported by the RIKEN Center for Biosystems Dynamics Research (BDR) and co-sponsored by Molecular Biology Society of Japan (MBSJ).

The past four decades of animal transgenesis research have seen a number of technological breakthroughs which have paved the way to linking genes and their functions. The current landscape of transgenic technologies includes a great many multi‐disciplinary approaches to the generation and characterization of genetically modified animal models. In particular, emergence of genome editing technologies and their application to animals in experimental and industrial settings have been transforming how we approach to the development of genetically engineered animal resources. This trend is likely to accelerate, and our goal is to make the TT2019 Meeting a venue for the transgenic technology community to explore possible future directions for the field. To this end, the Committee has been working rigorously to formulate an excellent panel of speakers in many disciplines.

MC. Birling, PHENOMIN-ICS, will present “Generation of genomic structural variants and chromosomal manipulation by CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing in rodents”, over the session covering the new Developments in transgenic technologies.

Join us for this must-attend meeting from the International Society for Transgenic Technologies !
