TT2016 Deadlines and Poster

TT2016, to be held in Prague in late March, should prove to be an exciting meeting. The scientific portion of the meeting will be from 20-23 March. In addition, there are three hands-on workshops that are available, including a Mouse Cryopreservation Workshop (16-18 March), a course on CRISPR/Cas9 programmable nucleases (16-18 March) and a Fish Transgenesis Course (23-25 March).

Early registration will close on 15 December, 2015, so register soon! Please note that ISTT members have discounted registrations, and can apply for a limited number of registration and travel awards (as detailed in e-mails sent to ISTT members). Applications and documentation for these awards must be sent in by 15 December, 2015 to istt@transtechsociety.org.

We also encourage you to submit an abstract for the poster session. A number of poster abstracts will be chosen for oral presentation, so this is an excellent opportunity to share your science. Poster submissions are also eligible for the TT2016 Poster awards. Abstracts are due by 15 December, 2015

Please note that a printable poster has been appended to this blog post. Feel free to print and post widely! Looking forward to seeing you at TT2016!
