Feb. 8, 2023 OPEN CALL

Appel à projets INSB | Accès aux Infrastructures Nationales de recherche

We are glad to announce the launch of a new call INSB CNRS National Infrastructure Access

PHENOMIN - CELPHEDIA is one of the National Infrastructures eligible to this call for proposals offering state-of-the-art technologies, methods and expertise.

  • Access to Research Infrastructures is open to the entire French and international scientific community, with contribution to the running costs of equipment being charged to the users on quote, after project feasibility confirmation by the infrastructure. The purpose of this program is to facilitate and finance access to these infrastructures.
  • Target audience are INSB teams new to a technology or method offered by these infrastructures, seeking to validate the contribution that the infrastructures could make to their research topic by removing barriers that impair the completion or finalization of an ongoing project of the team.
  • A new project is not eligible to this call. 
  • Access to technologies and related expertise, upon quote from the infrastructures and confirmation of feasibility in 2023 can be supported by this call.
  • In addition to the costs of access to infrastructure, upon a quote emitted by the infrastructure at the second stage of the call, travel/mission costs, as well as consumables that are not covered by the costs of access to infrastructure, may be covered.
  • The funding for each project will be in the range of 10 to 30 K€

One year Transparency Charter in Animal Research in France : first review

The use of animals in research is a complex and controversial subject. The scientific community is now aware that the general public needs to be informed about how animals are used in order to put an end to many preconceived ideas. In this context, the first Transparency Charter on the use of animals in research has been launched in February 2021. Its goal: communicating about animal research with the public.

A report after one year of transparency and openness

Even if the pandemic situation has been an obstacle to carry out some communication actions, the 38 signatories of the Charter have assessed this first year of transparency. Among their conclusions, it is clear that this Charter has made it possible to enable the general public to understand the value of animal use and to improve the image of research.

A new website for the TAAM PHENOMIN center

The Center for Typing and Archiving of Animal Models (TAAM) is one of the PHENOMIN partners belonging to the CNRS. The TAAM offers a range of high-level technical services based on expertise in multimodal in vivo imaging, custom colony management, management of axenic and gnotoxenic colonies, cryopreservation and assisted reproduction, microbiological and genetic analysis, and distribution of rodent models in France and abroad. The multimodal in vivo imaging covers innovative 2D and 3D imaging, including non-invasive exploration techniques for characterization of murine models. As a result of its close co-operation with high-tech industries, the TAAM implements the most recent technologies: 2D imaging such as X-ray Radiography, Scintigraphy or Optical imaging but also 3D imaging such as CT Scanner, 3D scintigraphy, Optical Imaging or Positron Emission Tomography.

Creation of the FC3R center (France Centre 3R): a key guide to support the application of 3R principles in animal research

Recently, in November 2021, following a request from the French government, the FC3R center was officially created. Founded by major French public research nodes, the FC3R will promote synergy and collaboration between existing entities in the field of the use of animals for scientific purposes in order to fulfil its mission. The main missions deal with training, scientific project’s design, founding of scientific projects which apply and promotes the 3Rs and communication.

"PHENOMIN welcomes the creation of the French center “FC3R”. This consists in a new step in the French landscape to support the application of the 3 Rs principles in animal research, since the center will be the French reference to answer all the questions related to the 3Rs (Replace, Reduce and Refine) and will allow to promote this crucial ethical concept in order to protect animals used for scientific purposes in any case it would be necessary.

Animal models in Neuroscience Translational Research

This new free edition on December 10, 2021 aims at gathering experts in neurodegenerative diseases with a focus on animal models in Neuroscience Translational Research. Besides, you will be able to interact with all key actors in the field: researchers, clinicians, TTO, biotech, and pharmaceutical companies. This event will also highlight young researcher skills.

Online registration is free and mandatory before November 30th.

This year, in-person sessions in Paris will be combined with online sessions meaning you can also join “Translational Neuroscience Day” from your office as well.

The event is supported by EATRIS (The European Infrastructure for Translational Medicine), and especially NeurATRIS ( Innovations for transnational neurosciences) And CELPHEDIA (The French infrastructure in Creation, Breeding, Phenotyping, Distribution and Archiving of model organisms)
