PATHBIO Mouse Embryology, Anatomy, Histology, Imaging, Barcelona, 15-26/7/2019

It is a pleasure to inform you that in July 15th-26th 2019 the first PATHBIO Summer course on Mouse Embryology, Anatomy, Histology, and anatomical basis of Imaging will take place in the Veterinary School at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona ( 

The aim of this course is to provide graduate, master, PhD and postdoc students with basic and expert knowledge to phenotype morphologically mouse models of human diseases. 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, including examples of mouse models for the major human diseases.

The course teaching pretends to be a “hands on” process, and 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.
