An international group of 14 participants took part in this year’s Jackson Laboratory workshop on phenotyping mouse models of human lung diseases. Respiratory mechanics measurements using the forced oscillation technique was the topic of three presentations and two laboratory sessions.
In addition to the scheduled sessions, the workshop was set to provide a unique opportunity to gain practical knowledge on this integrative, powerful and translational technique.
Participants also had the ability to discuss their individual applications with key leaders in the field during informal after-dinner discussions.
Having a look at this year's schedule could give you an idea of what is waiting for you next year. Mark your calendars - we would be happy to meet you there!
