Classic Examples in Toxicologic Pathology XXX

and the Department of Pathology at the University of Veterinary Medicine in Hannover, Germany,
and the European Society of Toxicologic Pathology
March 17 and 18, 2023

University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover
Department of Pathology, Bünteweg 17, 30559 Hannover
Friday, March 17, 2023 (1:15 PM – 6:00 PM) and
Saturday, March 18, 2023 (8:15 AM – 1:00 PM)
Please see also the final program.

The seminar will be held in English. Examples of toxicologic pathology will be presented and discussed by the participants, viewing slides with the induced lesions under individual microscopes or as electronic slides.

We provide handouts and slides for examination by the participants. Slides will be either conventional glass slides or digitalized slides. For conventional glass slides, 60 slide sets will be available for 120 participants. Slides will be viewed with individual microscopes and remain at the department. Also these slides will be scanned. All digital slides will be accessible for registrants approximately 2 weeks in advance of the seminar, during the seminar, and approximately 4 weeks thereafter. The slides will have a format that does not require the installation of software for examination in a standard browser ("VM SlideBrowser" will be executed). Once the electronic slides are accessible, registrants will be informed. We recommend examining the electronic slides before the seminar, as access during the seminar may be slow due to multiple downloads at the same time.

The slides and handouts can now be accessed with the information provided upon registration.
