MRC Mouse Network launch Meeting

MRC Mouse Network launch Meeting

Harwell will coordinate a formal launch of the MRC Mouse Network in order to start the networking. This, the first of the MRC Mouse Network Meetings, will take place on the Harwell campus on 13th January 2012. Please keep this date open in your diary or nominate a key representative for the Consortium that can attend in your place. There will be a TOTAL of three places available for each consortium. Harwell sits directly on the A34 south of Oxford, and there are excellent rail links through nearby Didcot. For attendees who plan to fly, Heathrow is within a one hour drive and transport to Harwell can be arranged by the MRC. Unfortunately, MRC Harwell has not been assigned a budget for these meetings. We will provide a venue and catering, but cannot offer to reimburse travel or accommodation expenses. Each Consortium will be asked to give a 15 minute presentation on the aims of their consortium and their contribution to the phenotyping effort and other areas of research effort.

Aims of the MRC Mouse Network Meeting:

  • Meet other members of other Consortia
  • Meet key people at Harwell working on the IMPC
  • Find out more about the IMPC: aims, timescale, status
  • Presentation and discussion of tests proposed by each Consortium
  • Other ways the Consortia are planning to contribute
  • Clarifying the roles of Harwell and the Consortia
