Join us for our second Network Associates Day
We are holding our second National Mouse Genetics Network Associates Day on the 9th of February at the National STEM Learning Centre in York. The event is free to attend and anyone interested in finding out how they could work with us is encouraged to join us. If interested, register now.
The day’s programme includes the launch of the 2024 Director’s Fund Call, with talks from two of the recipients of funding from the first funding round: Bill Grey from the University of York will talk about the development of a patient-derived xenograft biobank and Jethro Johnson from the University of Oxford will talk about assessing gut microbiome heterogeneity across the Network. You can also read more about these projects, and other funded projects, on our Projects page.
Attendees will also gain insights into the various ways they can interact with the Network, including through the new Ageing Cluster and the recently developed variant submission portal from the Congenital Anomalies Cluster, which will allow clinicians and researchers to submit variants of uncertain significance for the Cluster to help establish genetic diagnoses via modelling in mice.
Most importantly, the day will provide plenty of opportunities to connect with members of the Network and identify ways in which you could associate with us, whether through our Working Groups, Clusters, Director’s Fund, or upcoming training opportunities.
The meeting takes place at National STEM Learning Centre, Siwards Way, University of York, Heslington, York, YO10 5DD. You can find information on how to get to the Centre on the STEM Learning website. After the meeting we have arranged buses that take everyone back to York Central station. Buses are scheduled to leave at 4.30 and 4.45 pm. Please find the full programme for the day below.
