Veterinary Pathology Demystified, by Dr Aleksandra Zuraw
Time & Location
About the Event
When asked what veterinary pathologists do, what would you answer?
The first, logical guess might be “they evaluate animal tissues under the microscope”. But why would they do it? What animals do they look at? And why does it matter? Those who have already had contact with this pathology specialty know that it is an extremely broad and deep discipline encompassing many animal species and applications.
In this presentation, we will talk about the route to becoming a veterinary pathologist, the potential application fields of the discipline and how veterinary pathologists contribute to the “One Health” approach and drug development.
