The MRF Meeting 2015

In 2015, the Minipig Research Forum welcomed more than 80 attendees to its annual meeting in Rome. Fourteen speakers presented valuable information on the following topics: the use of minipigs in development of anti-cancer products; models of metabolic characterization of test compounds in the minipig; and efficacy testing of medical devices on minipigs. 

Among others, there was a presentation on gene expression in different tissues from Göttingen Minipigs during organ development from young to old minipigs.The programme also included workshops where attendees could share their knowledge and experience on minipigs in the development of anti-cancer products, metabolism and blood sampling, and training, respectively.

Many of the scientific presentations are available by logging on to the Minipig Research Forum website.

The organizers also arranged a guided tour through the centre of Rome, where we passed some of the city’s most famous attractions. The conference dinner took place in a restaurant with a view of the Colosseum. The restaurant offered copious amounts of delicious traditional Italian cuisine, and the dinner gave the attendees an opportunity to network.
