Dr. Ruth Sullivan, Veterinary Pathologist, leads a series of 1-hour tutorial/discussion groups each month to provide histology support to researchers on campus. All sessions are free of charge.
The 1-hour sessions will discuss:
- slides of normal tissue in question
- slides of tumors or other relevant pathology
- samples that attendees bring
- relevant immunohistochemical stains and/or "special" histological stains
Groups will be held on the First Floor of McArdle - Room 128 - Multihead Microscope. Each session is limited to 4 attendees, due to the size of the microscope. Anyone interested in attending is welcome and should RSVP Dr. Ruth Sullivan.
Groups will review the normal histology of the focus tissue and discuss and review common neoplasms of the tissue in animal models (primarily mouse along with some rat). Tissue from experimental animals other than rodents (for example zebrafish) can be brought to relevant sessions.
Discussion groups will either discuss a specific tissue type or be an open slide review.
No events are currently scheduled in this category. View all UW Health events.
