6th Swine in Biomedical Research Conference

Dear Colleague:

It is with great pleasure I invite you to attend the 6th Swine in Biomedical Research Conference to be held at University of Maryland in Baltimore from September 23-25. This meeting represents the sixth (1995, 2005, 2008, 2011, 2014, 2017) in a series of conferences that have highlighted the utility of porcine models in biomedical research.  

 Investigators with interest in using swine models for biomedical investigation, will find this to be a great conference to network and foster collaborations with industry and academic researchers. The current program with confirmed speakers and access to registration and abstract submission links can be found at

 This year we plan to offer limited "Young investigator awards" that cover registration costs and travel costs of graduate students and postdocs.Deadline for discounted registration and consideration of abstracts for platform talks and travel awards is: April 7, 2017.

 Looking forward to seeing you in Baltimore.

 With best regards,


Bhanu Telugu, Assistant Professor-University of Maryland

Visiting Scientist-USDA

MRC Harwell 2017 Summer Workshops:  Training for Laboratory Animal Science and Genetics

Seven different workshops to be held in June and July, 2017.

 EMBL Conference: Mammalian Genetics and Genomics: From Molecular Mechanisms to Translational Applications

Make plans now to join the International Mammalian Genome Society (IMGS) and the Mouse Molecular Genetics (MMG) in Heidelberg for EMBL Conference: Mammalian Genetics and Genomics: From Molecular Mechanisms to Translational Applications! The 31st IMGC is in partnership with the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and will be the only annual meetings of these two groups.  Heidelberg is one of Europe's most vibrant and charming cities, where you can discover the latest breakthroughs in molecular biology, genetics, and genomics by day, and explore castles, the world's largest wine barrel, and romance by night.
Abstract submission: August 1, 2017
Registration: September 12, 2017
Scholarships for trainees (post-docs and students) will be available through IMGS.
To qualify for a scholarship:
1) You must be a current IMGS member.  Go to the "Join" tab and fill in the information.  Your membership fee is waived for 2017, so when you get to the payment option, please select "Direct Bill".
2) You must submit an abstract  that is selected for oral or poster presentation.
3) You must submit an email to before August 1, 2017 stating your intent to apply for a scholarship.  In this email, please attach a copy of your abstract and a short statement of how this scholarship would enhance your career.  Please include all of your contact information, the name of your supervisor and whether you qualify as a URM.
