7th Call of STSM is now open

COST Action BM1402: Development of a European network for preclinical testing of interventions in mouse models of age and age-related diseases (MouseAGE) invites researchers from Participating COST Countries to submit applications for the 7th call for STSMs.


Purpose of a STSM
STSM are aimed at strengthening existing networks and fostering collaborations by allowing researchers participating in a given COST Action to visit an institution or laboratory in another Participating COST Country / an approved Near Neighbour Country institution or an approved International Partner Country institution. A STSM should specifically contribute to the overall scientific objectives of the COST Action, whilst at the same time enable researchers to learn new techniques or gain access to specific expertise, instruments and/or methods not available in their own institutions. 

We welcome applications that are aligned with MouseAGE’s current scientific priorities.  

Full details of the current MouseAGE priorities can be found on the website (www.mouseage.eu) and the...

INFRAFRONTIER Research Infrastructure

INFRAFRONTIER2020 Project - Trans-national Access call - June 2017
Late-onset systemic phenotyping (ageing pipeline)


Call information and application form


Context and aim of the call 
INFRAFRONTIER is the European Research Infrastructure for phenotyping, archiving and distribution of model mammalian genomes. The INFRAFRONTIER Research Infrastructure provides access to first-class tools and data for biomedical research, and thereby contributes to improving the understanding of gene function in human health and disease using the mouse model. The core services of INFRAFRONTIER comprise the systemic phenotyping of mouse mutants in the participating mouse clinics, and the archiving and distribution of mouse mutant lines by the European Mouse Mutant Archive (EMMA) (www.infrafrontier.eu).


INFRAFRONTIER2020 project and ageing 
The INFRAFRONTIER2020 project aims to develop pilot platforms and services supporting ageing research. These activities are tightly integrated with the current efforts of the International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (IMPC, www.mousephenotype.org)...
