Specialised phenotyping / metabolic phenotyping pipeline – trans-national access call

Context and aim of the call

Main objective of this INFRAFRONTIER2020 Trans-national Access call is to facilitate access for the wider biomedical research community to the unique infrastructure and scientific expertise of the participating INFRAFRONTIER mouse clinic, where mouse mutant lines can be tested through phenotyping pipelines with special focus on metabolic functions. As an example, disturbed energy balance regulation results in obesity and in numerous related metabolic disorders such as type 2 diabetes mellitus. We offer specialised phenotyping pipelines comprising state-of-the-art test assays monitoring disease related parameters.

Access will be granted based on scientific excellence and supports the development and in-depth characterisation of mouse models for investigating gene function and human pathophysiology. INFRAFRONTIER will provide open access to all characterised disease models and phenotyping data.

More information and call application form:

Proposal submission to by 15th April 2019. Proposal evaluation from 15 April 2019 to 15 May 2019.

Participating mouse clinic is the Czech Centre for Phenogenomics (CCP), IMG AS CR v.v.i.

The INFRAFRONTIER2020 project has received funding from the EU Research and Innovation programme Horizon 2020 (H2020-EU. Developing new world class research infrastructures)
