Johns Hopkins Mouse Pathobiology and Phenotyping Short Course
♦ Rigor and Reproducibility in Translational Research
July 26 -30, 2021 – ONLINE !!
REGISTRATION REQUIRED (Click ⇒ Links for registration forms; email completed forms to Welza1@jhmi.edu)
REGISTRATION DEADLINE JULY 23, 2021
⇒ GRAD students for full credit would schedule in-lab training at a later date.
⇒ Tuition Remission Form (for JHU Faculty & Staff) –$50 for any/all Lectures + Lab Demo Sessions,
labs, tours, slide conference, Monday reception
⇒ CONTACT firstname.lastname@example.org FOR ONLINE OPTIONS
Target Audience: Graduate students and postdocs, as well as research faculty and staff, who currently work with, or expect to work with mouse models and genetically engineered mice.
Since 2010 this has been offered in a short course format, largely for continuity of the practical laboratory training experience.
In 2021 we are offering lectures and lab demo sessions online, and will be trying some online interactive sessions as well.
Faculty from JHU School of Medicine and Bloomberg School of Public Health introduce concepts in mouse biology, pathology, genetics, normal ‘phenotypes’, phenotyping concepts, new and established phenotyping capabilities in multiple disciplines.
JHU cores and resources are highlighted. See previous course programs/schedules below.
Up to 29 hr Approved RACE CE credit. [Only sessions attended can be claimed for credit]
In lab training to be scheduled at a later date, after passing exam to include clinical and physical examination of mice, specimen collection, clinical pathology and anatomic pathology
(Familiarity with basic anatomy is EXPECTED for participation in laboratory sessions).
Syllabus material is provided: Hard copy laboratory manual is provided to all enrolled in laboratory sessions. Lecture and laboratory syllabus material is provided electronically as pdf’s linked to the program. It is NOT necessary to purchase a text book.
(JHUSOM graduate school ME 680.712) Course credit and grades are based on:
- Attendance and participation in online sessions;
- Exam (‘take home’, Open book, JHU honor code applies), distributed Monday at the beginning of the course, and Due Friday, 5pm.The exam is intended to be practical and relevant to diverse research.
- IN LAB training to be scheduled at a later date, after passing the exam.
