This workshop provides training in the use of genetically defined laboratory mice as tools for asking questions about gene function and the role of genetics in the biology of cancer. Lectures will be given in the morning by world-renowned scientists, followed by intensive hands-on laboratory sessions. Didactic lectures will reflect current knowledge of modeling cancer in a variety of organ sites and will emphasize common themes in cancer research and modeling.
This intensive workshop is for those wishing to obtain practical hands-on training in mouse surgical techniques. In addition to surgical procedures, topics covered include mouse biomethods, anatomy, aseptic technique, suturing and microscope use. Surgical techniques covered include castration, vasectomy, ovariectomy, ovarian transplantation, adrenalectomy, splenectomy, thymectomy, nephrectomy and jugular vein catheterization. Participants completing this course will obtain valuable skills in multiple high-demand mouse surgical techniques.
This four-day intensive hands-on workshop is for those wishing to obtain advanced training in surgical techniques for the laboratory mouse. In addition to biomethods and rodent survival surgery guidelines, a wide range of surgical procedures are taught including xenografts (intra-femoral, intra-splenic, kidney, lung, mammary, prostate and subcutaneous xenograft via trocar), mammary fat pad clearing, carotid artery catheterization, vascular access button jugular vein catheterization, 5/6 nephrectomy, unilateral ureteral ligation, intubation and ventilation.
This one-of-a-kind workshop provides an intensive, hands-on, training opportunity for graduate students, postdocs and investigators wishing to gain expertise in the use of the mouse as a model system for understanding normal and disordered human auditory and vestibular function.
This workshop provides intensive training sessions in pathology and histopathology as well as didactic sessions on disease areas and mouse models.
The Jackson Laboratory and Sorbonne Universités are pleased to offer a mouse surgical workshop in Paris, France. This four-day intensive hands-on workshop is for those wishing to obtain practical training in surgical techniques for the laboratory mouse including castration, vasectomy, ovariectomy, ovarian transplantation, adrenalectomy, splenectomy, thymectomy, nephrectomy and jugular vein catheterization. In addition to surgical procedures, topics covered include mouse biomethods, anatomy, aseptic technique, suturing and microscope use.
This unique hands‐on workshop teaches participants to use Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ARTs) to efficiently manage and preserve mouse strains using both CARD and JAX techniques. Participants will be taught by leading experts in the field and will obtain the information they need to implement ARTs when they return to their institution.
This is a NEW one-of-a-kind workshop on mouse stereotaxic surgery being held in Paris, France. Participants attending this course will learn how to: use different types of stereotaxic devices, read a Vernier scale, read a brain atlas and define bregma. Hands-on laboratory sessions with your own stereotaxic equipment include animal positioning on the stereotaxic device, intracranial drilling, intracranial injections, and brain cannulation into the lateral ventricle, as well as bi-lateral brain cannulation.
This workshop will leverage the expertise and facilities of the Indiana University (IU)/JAX Model Organism Development for Evaluation of Late Onset Alzheimer’s Disease (MODEL-AD) Precision Medicine consortium.
A hands-on workshop in the use of ChIA-PET for mapping 3D genome organization and exploring the topological architecture of transcription regulation.
In this intensive 2 1/2 day workshop, participants will be introduced to theory, experimental design, analysis and interpretation of microbial community analysis using genomic data.
This new intensive hands-on JAX course will provide scientists with the skills and knowledge required for rigorous design, execution, analysis, and reporting of behavioral phenotyping and pharmacology studies in the mouse.
