Workshop "Pathology of Fish"

Yearly workshop series on “Pathology of Laboratory Animals”.
Module 2: Pathology of Fish

The Fondazione Guido Bernardini (FGB) and Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) are proud to present the international workshop on fish pathology.
The workshop is primarily addressed to veterinary and medical pathologists, PhDs and laboratory animal veterinarians. Scientists aiming to obtain a broader and deeper knowledge on fish pathology will benefit from the workshop.

The programme will cover fish diseases (viral, bacterial and parasitic) and toxicologic pathology of selected tissues. 

The participants will be able to present and discuss cases with renewed fish pathologists from leading research institutions.

Gross pathology and histopathology sessions dedicated to veterinarians preparing for the ECLAM and ECVP boards will be included
