09h30                Genetic Drift – What it is and How to Minimize its Impact on Your Research

The phenotypes of genetically modified mouse strains depend on the genetic mutation and background. Genetic background is subject to genetic drift which may result in phenotypic drift over time. In this seminar, you will learn about the following topics:

  • The basis for genetic drift
  • Case studies demonstrating genetic drift and its effects on experimental results
  • The Jackson Laboratory’s unique Genetic Stability Program to stop cumulative genetic drift
  • Steps to ensure the long-term genetic and phenotypic stability of your mutant mice

Speaker: Jean Cozzi, PhD, Innovation Manager, Genetically Engineered Models and Services Europe, Charles River


10h30               Selecting Immunodeficient Mice For Oncology & Immuno-Oncology Research

Immunodeficent mice are powerful tools for modelling cancer, but how does one go about choosing the most appropriate model for a specific study purpose? During our presentation we will review and highlight the key considerations including:

  • Selecting the most appropriate model and levels of immunodeficiency
  • Benefits and limitations of nude, SCID, and Rag-null mice
  • Applications and innovations using the versatile NOD scid gamma (NSG®) strain
  • Generating mouse models with a "humanised" immune system

Speaker: Emmanuelle Campigna, PhD, Regional Manager Business Development Spain & Portugal, Charles River

11h30                Roundtable
