PATHBIO course on Mouse Embryology, Anatomy, Histology and Anatomical Basis of Imaging

New PATHBIO training courses available


Published 21st April 2021

We are pleased to announce that the third course on Mouse Embryology, Anatomy, Histology, and Anatomical Basis of Imaging will take place in July 5th‐16th, 2021 (virtual event). This course is aimed at graduate, master, PhD and postdoc students who wish to learn how to morphologically phenotype mouse models of human disease. During the course, expert mouse embryologists, anatomists, pathologists and researchers from Europe and the United States will give lectures and discuss with the participants different aspects of mouse morphological phenotyping, including examples of mouse models for the major human diseases.

Due to the COVID‐19 pandemic, attendance to the “classical” dissection room is not possible. During this course, lectures will involve on‐line dissections of the different regions and organs of the mouse body. Recorded videos and preprint material will be available for participants to improve the on‐line learning experience. Furthermore, radiographs, images from TEM, micro‐CT, and MRI, as well as digital slides, will be used for teaching during the course. The technological platform will be TEAMS (Microsoft). The local organizers will host the sessions and will lead the discussions.

There is no fee for this course. Interested participants should apply with a CV and a letter of motivation to Professor Jesus Ruberte. Deadline for applications is June 15th, 2021. Accepted participants will be informed by the end of June.

This course is organised by PATHBIO (, an EU‐funded ERASMUS+ Knowledge Alliance for “Precision Pathobiology for Disease Models”, including major European Universities, 5 European “Mouse clinics” for high‐throughput phenotyping of mice, major mouse providers (Charles River, JAX, TCP) and associated partners worldwide (KMPC, APN, UATE, UCT). This Knowledge Alliance will provide courses and on‐line teaching material for mouse embryology and anatomy, mouse pathology, and mouse imaging.
