Vanderbilt Mouse Kidney Injury Workshop

August 13 - August 17, 2018

Location: Nashville, TN

Details: http://www.mc.vanderbilt.edu/vckd/events/2018/workshop/index.php

This is a hands-on, practical training course designed to teach surgical and phenotyping techniques for commonly used mouse renal injury models, including ischemia/reperfusion (IR), UUO, 5/6 nephrectomy and the cecal ligation and puncture model of AKI.

A panel of experts has been assembled to teach basic animal handling, drug administration, tissue and blood sampling techniques (Day 1), tissue harvesting and analyses (Day 2) and mouse surgery technique (Day 3-5) with lectures, training videos, practical demonstrations and hands-on practical training techniques. By completion participants will 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!
