Two Open Calls for proposals for (A) mouse model development and (B) mouse phenotyping services offered FREE OF CHARGE by the InfrafrontierGR/Phenotypos research infrastructure at BSRC Fleming.

A. InfrafrontierGR/Phenotypos 2nd Call for Proposals for mouse model development 

The InfrafrontierGR/Phenotypos Research infrastructure is pleased to announce the 2nd Call for Proposals for a mouse model development service offered FREE of charge to one (1) selected research project.

The access unit offered covers the production of a minimum of a single heterozygous mouse line, carrying the gene alteration of choice.The model development service will be run by the BSRC Fleming Transgenics Facility and may involve one of the three main mouse transgenic technologies: CRISPR/Cas9, Blastocysts injection, DNA microinjection.

The main objective of this Call is to deliver free-of-charge, one novel mouse model of human disease to the biomedical research community (academic and non-academic) based in Greece. The novel mouse line should advance knowledge of human disease and should be of widespread use in biomedical science. Recent advances in genome editing technology will be used to develop the new mouse model. Access to this free-of-charge-service will be granted mainly on the basis of the applicant’s research plans and the potential impact of the proposed novel mouse line on the wider biomedical research community.

Deadline for Applications: September 15, 2020 (exdended!)

B. InfrafrontierGR/Phenotypos Call for Proposals for free-of-charge mouse phenotyping services

 The InfrafrontierGR/Phenotypos Research infrastructure is pleased to announce a Call for Proposals for mouse phenotyping services, offered FREE of charge to four (4) selected research projects.

The objective of this Call is to provide free access to state-of-the-art mouse phenotyping platforms to the Greek biomedical research community, including standardized and customized assays used to monitor disease parameters and elucidate the molecular and genetic basis of pathologic processes involved in chronic degenerative diseases. Services offered through this Call include:

1.Live imaging assays (colonoscopy, X-ray/bone density, bioluminescence imaging)
2.MicroCT imaging
3.Blood Analysis assays and Cell sorting 
4.Histology assays

Deadline for Applications: September 15th, 2020
