EAST-TO-WEST IRON CLUB
The next EWIC meeting will be held in Philadelphia, PA, October 27th – 28th, 2016, hosted by Stefano Rivella (Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and University of Pennsylvania) and EWIC Chair Bryan Mackenzie (University of Cincinnati).
Diane Ward and Jerry Kaplan have the “flatiron” mouse, which harbors a mutation in one allele of the ferroportin gene that gives rise to an amino acid change H32R resulting in ferroportin disease Blood. 2007 May 15;109(10):4174-80 and Development. 2010 Sep;137(18):3079-88. This mutation was generated by Irene Zohn in the lab of Lee Niswander and is on the C3H background. Dr. Zohn has agreed to share the mice publicly. We are no longer working with this mouse and wondered if anyone was interested in obtaining breeder pairs. If you are interested please contact Diane Ward by email firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP as we will be terminating the colony within the next two months. (Posted: May 24, 2016)

The International Bioiron Society (IBIS) was founded to advance knowledge about the biological and medical roles of iron and the processes in which it participates with particular reference to those processes of medical and industrial importance. IBIS's specific objectives are to provide a forum for discussions, to promote research and its publication and advance public education on iron chemistry and biology as well as on disorders due to iron deprivation or excess
