The Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche – “A. Buzzati-Traverso” Campus and The Jackson Laboratory offer the 2011 edition of a comprehensive course on cryopreservation of mouse embryos, sperm and ovaries. This Cryopreservation Course is financially supported by the EU FP7 Capacities Specific Program, through the European Mouse Mutant Archive (EMMA). The Course will be held in Monterotondo, Italy, on October 17-21, 2011.
The course is offered to teach methods in cryopreservation for banking of various strains of mice used in research, including inbred, transgenic and knock-out strains. Several methods of cryopreservation are now available and because no single method is adequate for all the various strains of mice being developed, a variety of methods are taught. The course is designed primarily as a “hands-on” laboratory program in which participants learn techniques for the cryopreservation of cleavage-stage embryos, spermatozoa and ovaries.
Course faculties include: Stanley P. Leibo, Robert Taft, Jane Farley, Sian Clements, Marcello Raspa, Ferdinando Scavizzi, Raffaele Matteoni, Susan Marschall, Martin Fray and K.C. Kent Lloyd. Enrollment is limited to 10 participants and early application is advised. Deadline for applications: September 20, 2011.
