Science Researcher Update: Spotlight on Meetings, Conferences, and Events

Workshop on Techniques in Modeling Human Cancer in Mice (2015)

Posted on Aug 19, 2014 2:07:00 AM


Workshop - Bar Harbor, ME, United States

It has become increasingly clear that the laboratory mouse, the best genetically defined experimental model organism for humans, presents a major opportunity for rapid advancement in understanding the genetic basis and underlying biology of cancer. The overall goal for this course is to train a small group of young scientists (predoctoral, postdoctoral trainees, new investigators) in the use of genetically defined mice as genetic tools for asking questions about gene function and the role of genetics in the biology of cancer. This intensive hands-on workshop will provide students experience with a variety of manipulations using commonly used mouse models that can be adapted for their own unique models. Students completing the course acquire a practical knowledge of how to characterize and analyze specific mouse cancer models, and skills in a variety of cancer model manipulations, resulting in a broad skill set to apply to their own mouse cancer modeling research.
