Research The ISTT is involved in all levels of transgenic research in animals, from the animal technician to the senior scientist. This link will take you to our research page that includes relevant publications, CRISPR/Cas9 resources and news pertaining to transgenic technology. Training The ISTT sponsors meetings, workshops and training courses in transgenic technology. One of our most popular offerings is the Transgenic Technology (TT) meeting. To see the latest offerings, and to see how to apply for ISTT sponsorship of your training opportunity, please click here. Sponsor The ISTT is very grateful to our generous sponsors who provide us with support to continue our work. ISTT sponsors offer valuable goods and services necessary for transgenic technologies. The resources provided to the ISTT allow us to host the TT meetings, provide awards for our members, and assist with website support. Please visit our sponsorsí page.

ISTT Releases Statement on 3Rs Priniciples as They Apply to Transgenic Technologies

Achieving the 3Rs through responsible work with animals

The ISTT is a scientific society whose members are generating and/or studying genetically modified animals and often engaged in assisted reproductive technologies. Although the use of animals is currently unavoidable we recognize that work is being done to develop alternative non-animal models in keeping with the 3Rs principle of replacement. Our membership is aware of our responsibility towards the animals we use for our work including the expectation that animal use will be reduced and the lifetime experience of experimental animals refined in accordance with the 3Rs principles of humane experimental technique.
