Attended: Workshop on Surgical Techniques in the Laboratory Mouse

The Workshop on Surgical Techniques in the Laboratory Mouse is an amazing course. The instructors are knowledgeable, and the staff are caring. Training in gonadectomy enhanced my fellowship application that was awarded, moreover, I learned a lot in caring for animals post-surgery which has improved my surgical techniques and experimental outcomes. The workshop also enabled me to network and discuss professional development with trainees and staff from different institutions.

Attended: Short Course on Experimental Models of Human Cancer


Even though I have years of experience in cancer research, I still managed to learn an amazing amount in this course. It featured world class researchers giving engaging talks across wide ranging aspects of cancer, and I continue to come back to the lectures available to participants. Would definitely recommend.

Attended: Human and Mammalian Genetics and Genomics: The McKusick Short Course

Speaking as a physician and a researcher, this course is absolutely invaluable! It gives you an insight into all the latest techniques and technologies in genetics, as well as their application. All lectures are relevant and entertaining. With attendees from around the world the course offers an incredible opportunity to gain not only contacts but also friendships with foreign colleges.

Attended: Human and Mammalian Genetics and Genomics: The McKusick Short Course

The lectures were phenomenal, as expected, and the content was not only informative but up-to-date. The mouse lectures and tutorials were of paramount value. I kept the slides and I go through some of them almost every week to review something. Highly recommend, especially for the younger and future generation of human geneticists.

Attended: Workshop on Surgical Techniques in the Laboratory Mouse

Participating in this workshop has been one of the best opportunities for professional development that I have had in my career.  As a trainer myself, the enthusiasm and quality from the all the instructors inspired me with a renewed sense of excitement that has carried over into my own training classes. I was able to return home with a solid set of new surgery skills that I was able to put into practice immediately. For anyone that would like to increase their skillset and knowledge in rodent surgery, I highly recommend attending this workshop. I hope to return for other workshops in the future.

Svetlana P. Chapoval, MD, PhD

Assistant Professor, University of Maryland School of Medicine

Attended: Workshop on Phenotyping Mouse Models of Human Lung Disease

I was impressed with how well the training course was organized and presented. The participants rotated between different training platforms and were able to learn and observe all procedures, experimental techniques in one day, and practice all of them next day. Presentation materials were well-organized, all questions were timely and clearly answered, and course instructors/invited speakers were superbly professional with in depth expertise in corresponding fields. Moreover, we all had the opportunity to present our research and discuss our data with colleagues from different universities/companies. This course was excellent from registration to delivery to follow up.
