The MMRRC education booth is back from two exciting end of the year conferences in San Diego: ASHG and SfN. Both conferences boasted strong attendance rates, with ASHG claiming their highest attendee count to date. There were many great poster sessions showcasing the latest research efforts involving the use of mouse models. We had the pleasure of meeting many new investigators and students and learning about their research efforts involving the use of mice. We were also excited to provide information about role that the MMRRC plays with archiving and distribution of mouse models, and the importance of rigor and reproducibility. It’s always great to see that our outreach and education efforts can have an impact on increasing awareness of the MMRRC.
