Successfully organized project workshops

At the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Zagreb, in June were held three project workshops. All three workshops were conducted in English, including the theoretical part with lectures by renowned national and international speakers, as well as a practical hands-on part, and they were in duration of three days each.
From 01 to 03 June 2016 a workshop was organized by the VFM Department of Pathology, entitled ''Comparative molecular analysis of selected tumors in humans and dogs.'' The lectures were given by dr. Franco Guscetti from the Institute of Veterinary Pathology, University of Zurich, dr. Sven Seiwerth from the School of Medicine University in Zagreb, dr. Željka Krsnik from the Croatian Institute for brain research and dr. Željko Grabarević as well as dr. Andrea Gudan Kurilj from FVM. The lecturers have covered the comparative analysis of hepatocellular carcinoma, breast cancer, melanoma, molecular pathology of tumors, ISH and IHC. Hands-on training for the 15 selected candidates included immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization and PCR analysis in the diagnosis of tumors and detecting mutations.
From 08 to 10 June, there was a workshop on ' Applied and clinical proteomics'' when the lectures were held by some of the most famous experts in proteomics: dr. David Eckersall and dr. Richard Burchmore from the University of Glasgow, dr. Jose Ceron, University of Murcia, dr. Hana Kovarova, Institute of Animal Physiology and Genetics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, dr. Ana Varela Coelho, University of Lisbon, dr. Sandra Kraljević Pavelić, University of Rijeka and Genadij Razdorov, University of Zagreb, School of Medicine. Hands-on part included among other, analysis and preparation of samples from serum and plasma and bioinformatics.
The last workshop was held from June 13 to 15 on the subject of ''Wildlife medicine: Parasitic diseases'', which induced the greatest interest among students, especially foreign students from Austria, due to interesting speakers and presentations, but also because of the attractive hands-on part. In this workshop, the expertise and knowledge was transferred by 9 foreign and domestic lecturers, dr. Vladimir Ivović, University of Primorska in Koper, dr. Gorazd Vengušt and dr. Diana Žele, University of Ljubljana, dr. Jan Lakemeyer, dr. Anja Reckendorf and dr. Kristina Lehnert-Sobotta, all from the Institute for Terrestrial and Aquatic Wildlife Research in Germany and finally dr. Dean Konjević, dr. Zdravko Janicki and dr. Tatjana Živičnjak from FVM Zagreb. Hands-on part was the most interesting part for young students because they were able to attend the autopsy of dolphins, sea turtles and jackal in Zagreb, as well as a review of the deer liver and participate in a field survey in the hunting ground "Podunavlje-podravlje" in Baranja.
These three workshops in 2016 were actually preceded by one on the subject of intellectual property rights, held on 12 and 13 of May, which was organized by the University of Zagreb and performed by dr. Vlatka Petrović from the Technology Transfer Office and dr. Romana Matanovac Vučković from the Faculty of Law, University in Zagreb.
Three additional workshops are yet to be organized within the project, starting with the academic year 2016./2017., until the end of the project in June 2019.
