Global and European Infrastructures IMPC and INFRAFRONTIER Towards the Deciphering of Gene Functions for Human Health

18 October 2022, 13:00 – 15:00 

Hybrid event (Brno, Czech Republic + Zoom)

European and world-wide research infrastructures such as IMPC and INFRAFRONTIER will provide comprehensive resources to unravel gene function in physiology and disease. These infrastructures are used globally to model human biology and disease, enabling therapeutic discovery and precision medicine. In the satellite event, together with colleagues from the rare diseases and gene therapy fields and from the research infrastructures BBMRI (biobanking resources), EATRIS (translational research) and ECRIN (multinational clinical studies), we will showcase and discuss our contributions and the best way forward to serve the research community.


On-site attendance is by invitation only. Please register here
