Mouse Kidney Injury Workshop
This is a hands-on, practical training course designed to teach surgical and phenotyping techniques for commonly used mouse renal injury models, including ischemia/reperfusion (IR), UUO, 5/6 nephrectomy and the cecal ligation and puncture model of AKI.
A panel of experts has been assembled to teach;
- Basic animal handling, drug administration, tissue and blood sampling techniques (Day 1),
- Tissue harvesting and analyses (Day 2) and
- Mouse surgery technique (Day 3-5) with lectures, training videos, practical demonstrations and hands-on practical training techniques.
By completion, participants will be sufficiently familiar with practical procedure to be able to set up the models in their own labs.
This course is unique to Vanderbilt as there is no other practical workshop like this anywhere!
