We are pleased to announce that the  IMPC will be at this year's European Society of Human Genetics conference at Glasgow in June.

We have an entire Symposia session on Sunday 7th from 17:30 to 19:00 titled 'Mouse Phenotyping for clinical research', with talks by Steve Brown from MRC Harwell (UK), Yann Herault from Institut Clinique de la Souris (France) and Martin Hrabe de Angelis from Helmholtz-Zentrum Muenchen (Germany).

Steve will begin by introducing the IMPC and our goals, and will illustrate how the consortium is revealing new insights into the genetic and molecular bases of disease. He will be followed by Yann, who will speak about how IMPC mouse models and data can be used for medical research into genetic diseases with intellectual disability. Lastly, Martin will show how the IMPC is being used to decipher the part played by genetics and epigenetics in the development of metabolic diseases.
