PATHBIO Module I: Mouse Anatomy

5 to 16 July 2021               virtual course                 local organiser: Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona UAB 


The first PATHBIO course module - Embryology, Anatomy, Histology, and the Anatomical Basis of Imaging - aims to provide graduate, master's, 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, including examples of mouse models for the major human diseases.


COVID-19 situation:

Hands on teaching is a very important phase for learning morphological sciences. However, due to COVID19 pandemic a “classical” presential dissection room teaching is not possible.

During this course lectures will be followed by online dissections of the different regions and organs of the mouse body. Recorded videos and preprint material will be available for participants to improve the online learning experience. Furthermore, radiographs, images from TEM, microCT, and MRI, as well as, digital slides will be used for teaching during the course.

The technological platform to set the online course will be TEAMS (Microsoft). The local organizers will host the sessions and lead the discussions.


Costs and Contact:

There is no fee for this course.
