This meeting is kindly sponsored by Charles River and we will have an afternoon symposium with exciting talks and a poster recycling party with wine and cheese.

We are delighted to have David Adams from the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute who will give a keynote lecture on cancer gene discovery in the mouse. David leads the Mouse Genome and Mouse Genetics projects at the Sanger. He has been at the forefront of mouse genome sequencing and genome annotation for many years and has made major contributions to experimental cancer genetics (http://www.sanger.ac.uk/research/faculty/dadams/).
Other highlights of this afternoon are talks by Jeffrey Pollard, Nicola Arnold, Kamil Kranc and Andy Schile.
Attendance of the Spring Meeting is free, but please register until April 19th by sending an e-mail to me (andreas.lengeling@roslin.ed.ac.uk) so we know how many people we're expecting for catering purposes. As you may be aware, the LT3 lecture theatre at the Ashworth Laboratories has a limited capacity (~80 people) and so if you wish to attend this symposium, we would encourage you to register as soon as possible.
After the talks we will have a reception with a POSTER RECYCLING PARTY. This will give you an opportunity to present your favourite mouse model to local ‘mousy’ colleagues. You can bring any poster you like or that you may have presented at previous meetings. This will be fun and it will be exciting to see how much new collaborations we can foster!
We will have space to accommodate 20 posters. Please, state at the registration if you would like to present a poster. Poster boards will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis (standard A0 poster)
We hope that you will be able to attend this event and we are looking very forward to welcome you on April 23rd.
