Registration open for 10th workshop on Innovative Mouse Models (IMM2019) – 19th to 21st June, 2019 in Leiden, The Netherlands.

Between the 19th and 21st of June 2019, the Netherlands Cancer Institute (NKI) and the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) organise the 10th edition of the workshop on Innovative Mouse Models (IMM2019) in Leiden, the Netherlands.

The goal of IMM2019 is to bring together a diverse group of scientists interested in all aspects of advanced mouse experiments within current ethical standards. Among the participants are key developers of emerging technologies as well as researchers who wish to apply and assess these new approaches. The workshop encourages an in-depth and unvarnished discussion of novel developments in a 3-day program with a series of invited speakers and presentations selected from submitted abstracts. IMM2019 is a unique opportunity for young researchers to share their experiences by means of a poster or brief oral presentation with a highly specialised audience.

The early-bird registration fee is: 200 € (deadline: 26th April, 2019)

The late registration fee: 250 € (deadline: 19th May, 2019)

Abstract submission closes on the 19th May, 2019
