International Conference on Cystic Fibrosis:

Contribution of Animal Models to Therapeutic Development

November 26 - 27th 2015

Salle Léopold Senghor, 1 bis rue de la Préfecture - Tours

INRA Val de Loire Center, Nouzilly


Conference Venue

We are very happy to welcome you to the International Conference on cystic fibrosis and the contribution of animal models to therapeutic development.

Since the discovery of CFTR as the gene responsible for Cystic Fibrosis, transgenic animal models trying to mimic CF have been the basis to increase our understanding of the disease and test new therapies. In this conference we aim to present the latest advances that these animals, from the early CF mice model to the more recent ENaC mice model and CF pig model, have brought to the field.

This meeting will be held firstly on Thursday afternoon (starting at 4pm) 26th of November 2015 at the Descartes high school conference room located in downtown of Tours at “Salle Léopold Senghor, 1 bis rue de la Préfecture”, at walking distance from the city hall and the train station of Tours city → map

Then, the Friday conference will take place at the INRA Val de Loire research institute of Tours-Nouzilly → map
A bus transport will be organized to carry all the participants to the institute at 8:00 am from the train station square of Tours and back by 6 pm to the city.

Nous sommes très heureux de vous accueillir à la Conférence Internationale sur la Mucoviscidose et l’Apport des Modèles Animaux aux Développements Thérapeutiques.

Depuis la découverte des mutations du gène CFTR, responsable de la mucoviscidose, des modèles animaux transgéniques reproduisant les signes cliniques de la maladie ont été générés. Ils ont permis d'accroître nos connaissances et notre compréhension de la physiopathologie de la maladie et de mettre en place et tester de nouvelles thérapies. Au cours de cette conférence, les dernières avancées scientifiques apportées par ces modèles animaux seront présentées y compris le modèle très récent de souris ENaC et le modèle CFTR KO porcin.

Cette conférence se déroulera les 26 et 27 novembre 2015. Elle se tiendra le jeudi 26, à partir de 16 heures dans la salle de conférence du lycée Descartes situé au centre-ville de Tours, "Salle Léopold Senghor, 1 bis rue de la Préfecture", près de la mairie et de la gare → voir la carte. Elle se poursuivra le vendredi 27 toute la journée à l’INRA Val de Loire, sur le site de Tours → voir la carte.
