Rodent Pathology in Translational Research and Phenotyping Workshop


 
Information
When: Monday, October 17, 2011 to Friday, October 21, 2011
8:00AM to 10:00PM

WORKSHOP NEWS

NATIONAL LABORATORY ANIMAL CENTER, TAIWAN

Introduction:

Phenotyping is one of the important techniques for assessing laboratory animals. In 2009, the National Laboratory Animal Center (NLAC) held the first Rodent Pathology Phenotyping Workshop in Asia; the workshop was very popular and successful, including attendees from China and Singapore. It showed that researchers and laboratory animal users were in need of phenotyping courses. In order to further advance the phenotyping skill in Taiwan, an advanced program of the workshop - Rodent Pathology in Translational Research and Phenotyping Workshop - is going to be held again by NLAC in 2011. Overseas experts are invited to Taiwan to train the first-line laboratory animal veterinarians and researchers, so that basic diagnosis on animal diseases can be practiced.  In addition, by attending this workshop, laboratory animal users may improve their knowledge on phenotyping to achieve the following goals:

 

1) Advance the ability of veterinary pathologist or M.D. on the aspects of experimental pathology and translational medicine.

2) Promote laboratory and pathological service, and genomic research collaboration.

3) Establish phenotyping service platform.

4) Stimulate cross-national, cross-unit or cross-institutional research collaboration.
