Free course in Mouse Pathology organised by PATHBIO

PATHBIO (pathbio.org)

is an EU-funded ERASMUS Knowledge Alliance for “Precision Pathobiology for Disease Models”, including major European Universities, 5 European “Mouse clinics” for high-throughput phenotyping of mice, and major mouse providers (Charles River, JAX, TCP). Supported by the INFRAFONTIER network (infrafrontier.eu) and the IMPC (mousephenotype.org), PATHBIO will provide courses and online teaching material for mouse embryology and anatomy, mouse pathology, and for imaging.

August 26-30, 2019, the first Mouse Pathology course will take place in Copenhagen at BRIC, Biocenter Copenhagen, Ole Maaløes Vej 5 (www.bric.ku.dk). Aim is to provide Master Students, PhD students, and post docs with basic and expert knowledge in mouse pathology, helping them to better analyze mice with disease phenotypes.

At this course expert pathologists and researchers from Europe, US, and Canada will give lectures and discuss with the participants different aspects of mouse pathology including specific disease phenotypes and models, quantitative digital pathology, mouse genome informatics, and basic histology. There will be also an opportunity for the participants to discuss the phenotype of their mice with expert pathologists.

There is no fee for this course. Participants have to organize travel and accommodation themselves and cover the corresponding expenses.

Interested researchers should apply with CV and letter of motivation to: cord.brakebusch@bric.ku.dk.

Deadline for applications is May 31, 2019. Accepted participants will be informed middle of June.
