Morphological Mouse Phenotyping – Embryology, Anatomy, Histology and Imaging (Course)

21. 04. 2022 Course Event

4-12 July 2022, Barcelona, Spain /

The fourth course on Mouse Embryology, Anatomy, Histology, and Anatomical Basis of Imaging will take place in a dual delivery mode: face-to-face in the Veterinary School at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona; and on-line. The aim is to provide graduate, master, PhD and postdoc students with basic and expert knowledge to phenotype morphologically mouse models of human diseases. At this course, expert mouse embryologists, anatomists, pathologists and researchers from Europe and the US will give lectures and discuss with the participants different aspects of mouse morphological phenotyping.

“Hands on” teaching is a very important phase for learning morphological sciences. Lectures will be followed by practical sessions in which participants will dissect specifically the different organs of the mouse body and will work with bone specimens, radiographs, and images from TEM, micro-CT and MRI. For histological teaching digital slides will be used.

On-line participants will follow the classroom lectures in streaming and will have access to recorded videos from the dissections.

There is a fee (150 €) for face-to-face students. For on-line students it is free. Participants have to organize travel and accommodation themselves and cover the corresponding expenses. Interested participants should apply with CV and letter of motivation to Deadline for applications is June 31st, 2022.
