Vanderbilt Mouse Kidney Injury Workshop

August 12 - August 16, 2019

Location: Nashville, TN

Details: http://www.vckd.org/education

This is a hands-on, training course designed to teach surgical and phenotyping techniques for commonly used mouse renal injury models.

A panel of experts has been assembled to teach animal handling, drug administration, tissue and blood sampling techniques (Day 1), tissue harvesting, histologic analyses and introduction to surgical techniques (Day 2) and mouse surgery techniques (renal biopsy, UUO, IR surgery and 5/6 nephrectomy) (Days 3-5) with lectures, training videos, demonstrations and hands-on practical training.

By completion, participants should be sufficiently familiar with practical procedures to be able to set up the models in their own labs. There is no other practical workshop like this anywhere!
