Indiana U. Alzheimer’s symposium

The IU/JAX MODEL-AD Center and the Indiana Alzheimer’s Disease Center hosted a scientific symposium focusing on translational approaches to Alzheimer’s disease featuring speakers from the Stark Neurosciences Institute, The Jackson Lab, Sage Bionetworks and Eli Lilly as well as a poster session.

Thanks to sponsors: Alzheimer Association; Stark Neurosciences Research Institute; IU Alzheimer’s Disease Center; and Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute.

Workshop on the use of mouse models to study neurodegenerative disease

The Jackson Laboratory will present the 3rd annual Workshop on using mouse models to study human neurodegenerative disease in May.  This course will focus on the use of the innovative tools and methods, specifically in the laboratory mouse, for answering questions of neuron and circuit function and disease mechanisms during neurodegeneration.  The course will employ both didactic and hands-on instruction in both laboratory techniques and bioinformatics.

Center Manager position available

The Model Organism Development and Evaluation for Late-onset-Alzheimer’s Disease (MODEL-AD) project seeks a Center Manager for the Jackson Lab site in Bar Harbor, Maine.  MODEL-AD aims to create the next generation of mouse models for AD and develop new therapeutic targets. The Center Manager is an integral team member in this multi-project, multi-institutional grant.  The successful candidate will devote effort to managing the laboratory staff, overseeing mouse colony management, data production and analyses, and presenting research updates at internal and external meetings.  Administrative responsibilities include serving as liaison between investigators at JAX, Indiana University (IU), and University of California-Irvine (UCI), communications between JAX MODEL-AD project leaders, and managing documentation for data use and lab and animal protocols. The successful candidate will be able to apply for grants to develop their own research interests that leverage the resources being developed within MODEL-AD.

Letters of support for NIA funding proposals

Some of the recent NIA Approved Concepts for funding (see https://www.nia.nih.gov/approved-concepts#collaborative ) encourage the use of mouse models created by the MODEL-AD program.  All of the models generated will be listed on the “Resources” section of this website, and will be available from JAX.  Please contact us at ModelAD@iupui.edu if you would like us to provide a letter of support.
