Module B is for those who want to advance their skills in areas such as gaining vascular access, asepsis, and jugular vein catheterization.

Module B: Experimental Research Techniques

We train in small groups of 5-8 with larger groups available by arrangement. Attendees are provided with a Leica or Zeiss binocular operating microscope, a full set of microsurgery instruments, and all of the materials you will need. You will experience hands-on learning both in models and in living material. Each module ends with a customized learning experience of choice where attendees can polish their skills in an area outside of the established training plan.

Our courses require a degree as a lab technician, veterinarian, biologist, pharmacologist or any other medical science.

If appropriate for you this can include;
  • pharmacology models, for infusion and blood sampling, for temporary occlusion stroke models, for transplantation models. Focal and global ischemia models in rats and mice. Cardio-vascular models (MI and TAC) or any others specifically relevant to your needs
  • pharmacokinetic models, for infusion and blood sampling from arteries, veins, bile duct, gut or any other places relevant to your needs
  • toxicology models, for a single dose, multiple-dose acute and chronic study designs and performance
  • different techniques of particular interest to participants by agreement before or during the module
