The INFRAFRONTIER2020 Trans-national Access Call on Specialised phenotyping / metabolic and behavioral pipelines is now open!
Main objective of this INFRAFRONTIER2020 Trans-national Access call is to facilitate access for the wider biomedical research community to the unique infrastructure and scientific expertise of the participating INFRAFRONTIER mouse clinics, where mouse mutant lines can be tested through specialised metabolic- and behavioural phenotyping pipelines.
Disturbed energy balance regulation results in obesity and in numerous related metabolic disorders such as type 2 diabetes mellitus. They offer specialised phenotyping pipelines comprising state-of-the-art test assays monitoring disease related parameters. In-depth behavioural phenotyping supports the elucidation of the molecular and genetic basis of behavioural impairments that are relevant for human neuropsychiatric disorders such as anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, schizophrenia, autism, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Disease.

call application form is available here.
