In response to numerous requests from BSTP members, the BSTP in-conjunction with the STP has organised a (pilot) case webinar scheduled for Thursday 8th June 2017, showing cases of spontaneous and induced changes in laboratory animals (rodents, rabbits, dogs, NHP and mini pigs) and would like to invite you to participate.
The aim is to provide continuing education to professionals and veterinary pathology residents, covering changes seen in animal models and induced by therapeutic agents as well as spontaneous or infectious changes, and to bring members of these communities together for discussion. The webinar is scheduled for ~ 1 hour to include 4–5 case presentations followed by questions. During the webinar, the cases will be presented and diagnoses discussed. All the cases will be provided to participants after the webinar.

Simone's Case - Pre-Webinar case information.
Species: Porcine (large white/duroc)

The images were taken from kidney tissue which was collected from two out of six experimental pigs for acute kidney injury (AKI).
