ISTTlogo2ISTT-ingenious

The International Society for Transgenic Technologies (ISTT), in collaboration with ingenious targeting laboratory, has established the ISTT YOUNG INVESTIGATOR AWARD that is presented at each Transgenic Technology meeting. The fourth edition of this ISTT Young Investigator Award will be given at the next 13th Transgenic Technology Meeting (TT2016), that will be held in Prague, on 20-23 March 2016.

The ISTT Young Investigator Award recognizes outstanding achievements by a young scientist who will keep the field of transgenic technologies vibrant with new ideas and who has recently received his or her advanced professional degree. The ISTT Young Investigator Award is generously sponsored by ingenious targeting laboratory.

To date, the ISTT Young Investigator Awards has been granted to Dr. Xiao-Yang Zhao (TT2011), Dr. Toru Takeo (TT2013) and Dr. Feng Zhang (TT2014).

The ISTT Young Investigator Award is associated to funds that will serve to defray the costs related to the participation of the ISTT Young Investigator awardee at the corresponding TT Meeting, including: TT meeting registration fee, travel expenses to the TT meeting venue and accommodation during the meeting dates for the awarded candidate, with a maximum being set to 1500 Euros. All ISTT Young Investigator awardees will be given 1 year Ordinary ISTT Membership and a diploma, that will be provided at the ISTT Awards Ceremony, within the TT Meeting Program.

Instructions for participating and additional information are provided at the ISTT Young Investigator Award web page, within the ISTT web site.

The International Society for Transgenic Technologies (ISTT) will be participating and/or co-sponsoring numerous events during the month of June 2013. At first, on June 7, 2013, our ISTT colleagues from Nantes (France), Ignacio Anegon and Séverine Ménoret, experts in the generation of transgenic rats, will be holding their 2013 Nantes Transgenic meeting on “Technical advances in the generation of transgenic animals and in their applications“. Next, on June 10-13, 2013, in Barcelona (Spain), the 12th FELASA-SECAL congress will take place, where the ISTT will be participating in two ways. First, the ISTT will co-sponsor the satellite workshop on Mouse Sperm Cryopreservation, to be held within the 2013 FELASA meeting, on 10 June 2013, Barcelona, Spain, and organized by ISTT members Jorge Sztein (NIH, USA) and Jesús Martínez-Palacio (CIEMAT, Madrid, Spain). Second, the ISTT will be participating as exhibitor and will attend the 2013 FELASA meeting. The ISTT will have a booth in Barcelona (#230), manned by the ISTT administrative assistant, Alison Cameron, and where all ISTT members (and non-ISTT members) are welcome to visiting us. Finally, immediately next, our ISTT colleagues from The Netherlands, Marian Van Roon (VU, Amsterdam) and Sjef Verbeek (LUMC, Leiden), have organized their 2013 Workshop on Innovative Mouse Models (IMM2013). This 7th Workshop on Innovative Mouse Models will be held on 13-14 June 2013, at the Leiden University Medical Center, LUMC, Leiden, The Netherlands, and the ISTT will be co-sponsoring also this event. ISTT members will be entitled to reduced registrations at all these events, proudly co-sponsored by the ISTT.

The official language of the course will be English.

COURSE INFORMATION: Recent developments from the laboratory of Prof. Naomi Nakagata (CARD-Kumamoto University, Japan) have boosted the mouse cryopreservation field with improved methods for fresh and frozen sperm techniques and associated optimized IVF methods that have resulted in unparalleled increased efficiencies for the cryopreservation and rescue of relevant mouse lines. At the CNB-CSIC in Madrid, hosting the Spanish EMMA node, these new CARD cryopreservation methods have been successfully implemented and, moreover, a fruitful collaboration has been established with the laboratory of Prof. Naomi Nakagata, eventually resulting in the signature of an institutional cooperation agreement between the CSIC and the University of Kumamoto, under the framework of which this cryopreservation course is organized. The aim of this course is to introduce the new CARD methods to researchers and technicians involved in managing mouse archiving and/or transgenic facilities and willing to implement these new methods, directly taught by the team which devised them. Each participant will have one stereomicroscope and the entire set of tools, reagents and animals required to learn and practice all the methods included in the program of this course. In addition to practical sessions, the course will also include several lectures of related interesting topics for the participants delivered by experts in each field. The number of instructors and lecturers appointed is 20.

Hands-on topics that will be covered during this cryopreservation course

  • making pipettes and practising embryo handling
  • isolating unfertilized mouse oocytes
  • isolating and cold storage/shipping of mouse cauda epididymis
  • freezing/thawing mouse sperm and IVF
