This workshop will enable senior researchers to master the challenges related to the interpersonal aspects of doing science and to confidently fulfil their leadership role.
The programme will enable you to build effective relationships by boosting your communication skills and changing your mindset to positively impact your results.
The first session will concentrate on the well-established methods of classical transgenesis and gene-targeting via embryonic stem cells, and will include examples of how to produce a range of mutation types; for example over-expression models, gene knock-outs and point mutations, both constitutive and conditional.
The second session will address more recent developments, such as the use of gene-editing nucleases, their advantages and limitations, and novel methods of gene transfer.
The workshop will introduce participants to experimental histopathology by reviewing the basic concepts of pathology (macroscopic and microscopic lesions/tissue evaluation). Routine and specialized histological techniques used to obtain and process tissue samples, and notions of digital pathology, and image acquisition and processing will also be covered.
Moreover, several examples of the applications of histopathological studies to biomedical research will be presented.
The session is addressed mainly to PhD researchers and users of the Histopathology Core Facility.
Leadership in Action is a three day; activity based; residential training course. Working in the Montserrat Hotel and Training Center, will practice your leadership skills and gain an insight into leadership theory. Working with Postdoctoral staff from across the seven BIST centres, you will have the opportunity to gain insights from follow researchers across the disciplines and at different stages in their career. Your focus is to develop your leadership style so you are more impactful and effective in your workplace.
