PATHBIO is an EU-funded ERASMUS+ Knowledge Alliance for “Precision Pathobiology for Disease Models”, involving 20 partners from all over the world i.e, major European Universities, the most important Mouse Clinics and the biggest Enterprises in charge of Mouse Models Distribution.This Knowledge Alliance will provide courses and online teaching material for mouse embryology and anatomy, mouse pathology, and for mouse imaging.

In September 21st-29th, 2020, the module on Mouse Imaging, will be organized by PHENOMIN-ICS (PHENOMIN- Institut Clinique de la Souris) as virtual classes. The aim is to provide graduate, master, PhD and postdoc students with basic and expert knowledge to phenotype morphologically mouse models of human diseases. Imaging offers the opportunity to characterize further the features with a wide variety of methods and they are almost translational, with most of them primarily developed in human and adapted to animal models. The invited experts, mouse embryologists, anatomists, pathologists and researchers from Europe, Asia, and Canada will give lectures and discuss with you different aspects of mouse Imaging technologies providing powerful tools to understand and follow the progress of diseases and how to take advantage of these imaging methods to answer your scientific questions, specifically focusing on the 3’R criteria (Refinement, Replacement and Reduction), ethics and animal welfare.

It will be a unique chance to understand the basic principles of several key methods from structural to functional imaging and to get an overview of the best practices including the 3’R rules to design scientific experiments. There is not fee for this course.  Interested participants should apply online with CV and letter of motivation.

Delighted to welcome you !

Given the extremely challenging circumstances presented by the COVID-19 pandemic the planned PATHBIO courses will move to online delivery for 2020. The current program has been slighty modified for close personal interaction with the course faculty online and keep as best as possible the scheduled workshops. The course is then running from September 21st to 29th. The PATHBIO team wishes you all well and safe at this very difficult time.
