GV-SOLAS 55th Annual Meeting

How can animals be used to investigate the causes of the aging process and to develop successful therapies to treat age-related diseases such as cancer, diabetes, stroke or neurodegeneration? Such translational approaches regarding aging research will be a focus of the GV-Meeting 2017.

Current developments in the field of targeted genetic modifications lead to expectations that the spectrum of genetically modified experimental animals with harmful phenotypes will increase and present the field of Laboratory Animal Science with new challenges.  Initially limited to a few species, such genetic changes are now possible in a variety of organisms and can be performed quickly and with little expertise required. The conference will provide a platform for a lively exchange in this area.

About DSI Events

Data Sciences International (DSI) is involved in over 60 events every year. These include scientific meetings such as industry trade shows, courses and seminars, workshops, as well as educational user groups and symposia all over the world.

DSI supported educational events are scientific meetings organized in cooperation with a local institution or society, pharmaceutical company, university, or local telemetry user group. Educational event meetings serve as an educational forum in which researchers can freely share current scientific information with their peers, students, and other interested scientists.

Common to the general theme of the meetings is the data collected through physiological monitoring of freely moving conscious laboratory animals made possible through the use of fully implantable telemetry technology.

Presentations and posters on the latest methods employed by the presenting researchers enable those attending to benefit from the as yet unpublished work of peers. Presentations can be on a wide range of related research topics including surgical implantation methods, data analysis methods, treatment effects of new pharmaceutical compounds, new animal models, behavioral and physiological interactions, basic research on physiological systems, and numerous other whole animal chronic monitoring research topics.

Meetings are held in classroom style with ample time allowed for questions and discussion among the participants. Typical audience sizes run from 40 to 120.
