Disease Modeling (formerly named Phenotype Characterization of Genetically Modified Mouse Models) symposia form a series of workshops focusing on methods used in the generation and phenotypic characterization of genetically modified mice. The aim of the symposium series is to promote practical understanding of the usefulness of mouse models in biomedical research in general and in drug discovery and development in particular. It aims to provide in-depth training for doctoral candidates, post-doctoral researchers and other scientists involved in this field of research.
