Large Animal Genetic Engineering Summit
Utah State University, College of Agriculture and Applied Sciences
It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the first Large Animal Genetic Engineering (LAGE) Summit. Our objectives for the summit are twofold: 1) to provide an update on new approaches to the genetic modification of large animal species for development of better animal models for biomedical research, biomanufacturing, and improved agricultural production; and 2) to provide a forum for discussions on funding mechanisms and regulations effecting development of genetically engineered large animals. Our first summit is being held in Bethesda, Maryland, to facilitate participation by representatives from various federal agencies who either fund or regulate the production of genetically engineered animals. We are grateful to the representatives from NIH, USDA and FDA who have agreed to participate in the meeting. We thank our sponsors who have helped make the summit possible and the people who have worked hard to make sure that the summit is a success. We trust that the summit will be informative, invigorating and intellectually stimulating. We also hope that this event will provide an opportunity for you to renew old friendships, as well as develop new contacts and collaborations.
