8th Annual Workshop on the Pathology of Mouse Models for Human Disease

This workshop provides a week of intensive training sessions in pathology and histopathology as well as didactic sessions in which particular disease areas and models will be discussed. Participants will have an opportunity to interact with a group of prominent mouse pathologists and geneticists from leading research institutions.
Topics and models to be covered include: nomenclature, basic mouse genetics, concepts of mouse model generation, approaches to working up mutant mice, role of pathologists at research institutions, systemic, hematopoietic, mammary, gynecologic, cutaneous, infectious and immune system pathology, embryology and cancer models.
Workshop meets the requirements for 35 hours of continuing education credit in jurisdictions that recognize the AAVSB RACE approval; participants should be aware, however, that some boards have limitations on the number of hours accepted in certain categories and/or restrictions on certain methods of delivery of continuing education

Hi Monu,

Hi Monu,
where is the source of information from where you got the information there are no details where to look for,
Monu its really good to share such information but i think  it would be better to put the posts from same website in single post rather making multiple posts  from the same in a single day, as in your previous posts from jackson lab link, i think that will be great, and would not create the intention of purely moving up in top ten tally, hope you agree with that............ 
lets contribute and earn help from this valuable resource (Scientistsolution) by maintaining the standards and quality
Good Luck !!!!!!!!!!!
