Phenomin Thematic Summer Schoօl - Methods and Good Practices for Use of Mouse Models for Scientific Research, 20-24 May 2019, France

Publish Date: Jan 03, 2019

Deadline: Feb 15, 2019

Event Dates: from May 20, 2019 12:00 to May 24, 2019 12:00

3rd European Advanced School for Mouse Phenogenomics

Methods and the good practices for the use of mouse models for scientific research

Advanced school

The school will expand your understanding of critical aspects related to mouse model for biomedical and basic research.

  • The thematic school is a 4-days advanced program which promises to accelerate shared conceptual scientific advances, to transfer innovative methods and techniques in the use of mice in biomedical research, from the design of experimental protocols until its realization and data analysis.
  • The school describes the state-of-the-art on a variety of fields, organized around 5 topics, namely mouse genetics, mutagenesis, mouse colony management, mouse clinical phenotyping and data management (statistical approaches).
  • Importantly, it will also be explained the new public web resources connecting model organisms to human diseases for a rich appreciation of the conservation in mammalian functional genomics.

This biannual international event provides a wealth of information in the use of mouse model to improve the research of attendees.

What are the benefits of attending this training?

PHENOMIN's school provides the unique opportunity for PhDs and young postdocs to discuss their research in detail with experts as well as peers.

  • Connection between doctoral education and international research projects
  • Theory and workshops
  • Networking and socialising

The expected impacts are:

  • Concrete changes in the management of your experimental projects
  • Concrete changes in your laboratory and/or animal facility
  • Concrete changes in the analysis and interpretation of the model data you use

The program also addresses the item of continuing professional education consistent with the new European directive requirement for lab animal protection in experiments.

To whom is the school targeted ?

The thematic school welcomes newcomers and former participants, peoples who directly or indirectly use the mouse as a model for scientific research and wish to expand their understanding of animal research.We encourage both industrial and academic researchers from across Europe to attend this school.

The school is intended for:

  • PhDs and Postdocs
  • Researchers
  • Clinicians 

The school involves major infrastructure from France and rest of Europe, through its INFRAFRONTIER partnership.The teachers are all experts from European landscape of the mouse phenogenomics field.

A maximum of 40 participants can attend at the school.


  • PhD applicants: 360€ / 470€ after February 15th 2019
  • Applicants from governmental institutions: 600€ / 780€ after February 15th 2019
  • Applicants from private institutions or companies: 1680€ / 2180 € after February 15th 2019
