Great success at JAX Workshop on Phenotyping Mouse Models of Human Lung Disease

After a year of absence, the well-established Workshop on Phenotyping Mouse Models of Human Lung Disease returned last week in Bar Harbor, ME.  As in the past, SCIREQ was a partner in this year's event, in collaboration with the Jackson Laboratory Educational Program.

The course, which offers great learning and networking opportunities, contains both a theoretical and a practical part and covers various topics relevant to respiratory research.  Two laboratory sessions on lung function measurements are typically included in the event schedule.  During these sessions, the participants are divided into small groups, where they can interact with key leaders in the field, such as Dr Wayne Mitzner (John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health) or Dr Lennart K. A. Lundblad (The University of Vermont), while learning about state-of-the-art techniques.

This renowned scientific event catering to the needs of pre-clinical researchers from around the world was fully attended this year.  We will be there next time.  We hope you will be there too!
