Course “Microbiota and Gnotobiotic Rodents”
The Fondazione Guido Bernardini (FGB) was established in 2009 as an independent, non-profit organization in memory of Guido Bernardini.
FGB is devoted to continuing education and training of professionals involved in the care, welfare and use of laboratory animals; the overall mission is to support the humane and responsible use of animals in science and to promote the quality of biomedical research by encouraging high standards of knowledge and competence in scientific and technical staff.
This two-day course is designed to provide the participants with the most recent information on the microbiota of laboratory rodents and on the use of gnotobiotic animals as experimental models. The programme of the course includes also topics related to the organization and management of facilities that breed and use such animals for research.
The lectures of the renowned speakers will cover the interactions of microbiota with the host organism and, in particular, the impact on numerous aspects of animal normal physiology and on the development of many diseases.
