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

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

Posted on Mar 24, 2015 2:33:00 PM

Workshop - Bar Harbor, ME, United States
This workshop will train a small group of young scientists (predoctoral, postdoctoral trainees, new investigators) in the use of genetically defined laboratory mice as genetic tools for asking questions about gene function and the role of genetics in the biology of cancer. A major goal of this intensive hands-on workshop is to provide students an 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 so that students will have a broad skill set to apply techniques and manipulations to their own mouse cancer modeling research. The practical laboratory sessions will use a variety of normal and cancer models, and experimental manipulations using breast, prostate, brain, lung, leukemia/lymphoma and colorectal cancer models. The techniques learned are broadly applicable to many other cancer types, as well. Didactic lectures will reflect current knowledge of modeling cancer in a variety of organ sites and will emphasize
