VBI comes to Jackson Lab in 5-Day Educational Seminar

The Veterinary Bioscience Institute is proud to be a part of Jackson Laboratory's 5-day educational seminar entitled "Workshop on Surgical Techniques in the Laboratory Mouse."

PRLog - Feb. 23, 2011 - HARLEYSVILLE, Pa. -- The Veterinary Bioscience Institute is proud to announce a unique opportunity for the provision of mouse laparoscopy training.  Jackson Laboratory, the premiere non-profit research institute that provides mouse models to help cure human disease, is also an exceptional provider of education regarding mouse biomethodologies and of various procedures on mice. Jackson Laboratory has honored the Veterinary Bioscience Instititute (VBI) by including them as one of the providers of education during their upcoming 5 day educational seminar entitled "Workshop on Surgical Techniques in the Laboratory Mouse", occurring on April 3-8th, 2011.  VBI will be performing multiple sessions over two days on mouse laparoscopy. This session allows participants to engage with hands on practice with rodent appropriate laparoscopic equipment. VBI's goal for participants in this workshop is to become familiar with rodent appropriate laparoscopic equipment and learn for which procedures laparoscopy in rodents is most advantageous.
VBI is committed to refinement of surgical procedures for rodents, and laparoscopy is a natural fit. Laparoscopy in rodents can reduce pain and healing time post-surgery, allows practitioners to collect serial tissues which means that each mouse serves as its own internal control, and decreases non-experimental variables in research.
VBI is thrilled that Jackson Laboratory has validated their mouse laparoscopic model by allowing VBI to be a part of this exciting workshop.
