Session 67: Transgenesis and Their Use in Animal Models for Human Reproduction
Tuesday 8th June, 2021. 3PM EST/ 8PM GMT / 9PM CET
DR. HIROSHI KIYONARI
Dr. Hiroshi Kiyonari is a team leader of Laboratory for Animal Resources and Genetic Engineering, RIKEN BDR Kobe, Japan. He got PhD degree in Graduate School of Science and Technology, Kumamoto University. He supports investigators at RIKEN BDR in various aspects of laboratory animal experiments by managing the centralized animal facilities and providing technical assistance in reproductive biology and embryology. In addition to these core functions, he generates more than 50 new genetically engineered mice models each year in collaboration with biomedical research communities in Japan and Asia. Collectively, he aims to develop new tools and resources in the mouse and other small vertebrate species as in vivo models to meet the evolving animal research needs.
