BSTP Annual Scientific Meeting – Pathology of Mouse Models of Disease

The BSTP’s 33rd Annual Scientific Meeting (including the AGM) will cover the topic of mouse models of disease. Registration for this meeting is now closed and we are unable to accept any further requests to attend.  If you are interested in attending future events organised by the BSTP, please contact the BSTP Secretariat – bstpoffice@aol.com to ensure that your details are on the mailing list. Based on the approach of previous mouse pathology meetings organised by the Wellcome Trust in 2012, 2014 and 2016, this meeting will aim to have a mix of talks to enable those in the early stages of their career to learn about mouse pathology basics (Session 1) and for the more experienced pathologists Session 2 (now full) aims to enable them to refresh their knowledge on the basics, whilst including talks on advances in mouse pathology, including: Animal models in the age of CRISPR technology. Animal models in oncology drug development Humanised mouse models in infectious disease research Automated image analysis and artificial intelligence in pathology Taking images for publication Environmental effects on model phenotypes A ‘toolkit’ for pathology – recognition of gross lesions, taking samples, fixatives, special stains, RNAscope, tissue trimming and embedding, creating pathology data, INHAND, goRENI, comparative histopathology, comparative histopathology, strain and age-related differences. .. This event has a strong speaker line-up which will be sure to draw in a large number of delegates and the programme has been designed to cover a comprehensive spectrum of issues and technologies. Approved by the Royal Society of Biology for purposes of CPD, this event may be counted as 36 CPD credits 11.75 hours of educational activity will be recorded on Attendance Certificates SPONSORS   Financial support for the meeting has been kindly provided by the Pathological Society of Great Britain and Ireland
