Comparative Pathologist Sue Knoblaugh, DVM, offers one-on-one or small group (2-3) training in mouse necropsy techniques. The class will provide a thorough guide for collection of all major organs and lesions in an efficient and orderly fashion. Techniques discussed include: proper dissection, tissue trimming, and fixation.  Reference notes and further mouse references will be provided.

Who should attend the Necropsy Class?  In addition to new researchers, we strongly encourage all investigators, graduate students, fellows, and staff engaged in animal research to attend.  This is also a good opportunity for those new to mice and/or new to the Hutch to meet Dr. Knoblaugh.

Dr. Sue Knoblaugh is a board certified veterinary pathologist with specific training and expertise in laboratory animal comparative pathology.  Dr. Knoblaugh has a special interest in genetically engineered mouse models of human disease focusing on cancer and infectious disease. She often collaborates with Fred Hutchinson faculty to evaluate and characterize their mouse models.
