On April 1 members of the Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) Preclinical Consortium met in Silver Spring, Maryland to discuss ongoing preclinical projects and set priorities for the rest of the year.
The TSC Preclinical Consortium invites nominations of compounds to test in one of four animal models relevant to TSC. Epilepsy (spontaneous): Tsc1flox/flox;GFAP-Cre+ (GFAP-Tsc1-CKO) mice Tumor (graft): 105K (Tsc2-null) mouse cell grafts in mice Epilepsy (spontaneous): in utero electroporated RhebCA mice from Angelique Bordey’s lab Tumor (spontaneous): Tsc2+/- A/J mouse renal cystadenoma model

The Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP) invites the research community to view a webinar series on funding opportunities that have a team science component. The webinar will provide an overview of types of award mechanisms that encourage multiple investigators, key elements of team science program announcements, required application documents, and general guidance for applicants.
Are you looking for samples from TSC patients to use in your lab? The TSC Biosample Repository has a growing collection of samples that are tied to phenotypic data. In most cases, we can ship these samples at no charge to the investigator.
