The “Human Diseases Models Morphological Phenotyping” (MorphoPHEN) initiative has been awarded as an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master by the European Education and Culture Executive Agency (Project reference number: 101082155).
MorphoPHEN is a one-year master (60 ECTS), divided in two semesters of 30 ECTS each. It is conceived to alleviate the real shortage of experts in morphological mouse phenotyping, which is needed to generate a positive impact of preclinical biomedicine and improve human translatability (from the bench to the bedside). MorphoPHEN combines the excellence and expertise of four leading European universities, the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), the University of Naples Federico II (UNINA), the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH), and the Veterinary School of Lisbon (FMV-ULISBOA). They bring knowledge on the four main branches necessary to analyze the morphology of mouse disease models: Anatomy and Embryology, Pathology, Imaging, and Deep learning.
IMPC gave support to the training programme previously developed by PATHBIO, the cradle of MorphoPHEN. Now, for the new master’s degree, the IMPC will continue its support!
