Lectures and seminars Webinar: “Data doesn’t end at death: pathology as a mission-critical specialty for reproducibility and rigor in translational research”
The aim of these CPD (Continuing professional development) is to follow the legal requirements for maintenance and demonstration of competence in laboratory animal science, and to facilitate the implementations of the 3R’s in routine animal work.
“Data doesn’t end at death: pathology as a mission-critical specialty for reproducibility and rigor in translational research”
This talk will discuss the importance of pathology to the generation of high-quality reproducible data in preclinical studies with animal models. Best practices for bio-sampling in animal studies will be discussed, concentrating on ways to minimize bias and control variability in animal model experiments. It will review the important component items that should be considered in the pathology section of a research protocol and focus on factors that impact the quality of pathology study data. Lessons learned from the world of toxicologic pathology in pharmaceutical safety assessment will be used as exemplars for how the practice of pathology can be improved in academic research.
Prof. Jeffrey Everitt, DVM, Department of Pathology, Duke University School of Medicine, U.S.
