Training Courses

The INFRAFRONTIER Research Infrastructure and its partners offer a wide range of state-of-the-art training opportunities. These Mouse clinics in different European countries provide outstanding trainings in first-line mouse phenotyping as well as specialised phenotyping courses covering e.g., mouse osteology and mouse blood and lymphatic vessel phenotyping. These courses also cover unique training opportunities in mouse model development as well as hands on cryopreservation courses offered by EMMA partners.
