ICS celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2022!

Actualités |

The Institut clinique de la souris is 20 years old in 2022. This year will be the occasion to organise a series of events to share the successes of the ICS, to thank the industrial and scientific actors who have placed their trust in the Institute over the past 20 years, and to highlight the techniques available at the ICS that can benefit the entire community.

An anniversary that coincides with the 20th anniversary of the sequencing of the mouse genome

Over the past 20 years, the Institut clinique de la souris has contributed to numerous advances in the study of genes and their function and has helped to bring about many innovations in this field of research. To retrace this journey, the ICS invites you to join us throughout 2022 for webinars, visits, debates and conferences.

Upcoming events during 2022

Throughout this anniversary year, various types of events will be organised:

  • Starting in January and continuing throughout the year, user presentations will take place through different webinars to share their experience with you in the use of animal models;
  • In spring 2022, a special event will be organised to share a time of exchange with the industries and actors of the Illkirch innovation campus;
  • In November 2022, two days will be devoted to an official ceremony to be held in person at the IGBMC;
  • Other one-off events will be added to this list.

The first user feedback will take place on 25 January 2022. During this webinar, two users will speak:

  • Thomas Rosahl, external in vivo pharmacology lead at Merck, will show how the ICS phenotyping platforms contribute to the research carried out in his company;
  •  Françoise Piguet, researcher at the Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle épinière (ICM), will present how ICS allowed her to collect the data necessary to prepare clinical trials for gene therapies.

We will keep you informed of the various events and webinars organised as part of this twentieth anniversary. You can also visit the page dedicated to this event on the ICS website: click here.
