UNIVERSITY OF IBADAN, NIGERIA Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Departments of Biochemistry and Physiology and Pathology
1ST WEST AFRICAN REGIONAL WORKSHOP ON OXIDATIVE STRESS AND IMMUNOHISTOCHEMISTRY TECHNIQUES – THEORY AND PRACTICE
The Department of Biochemistry and Biotechnology, College of Science, KNUST, Kumasi, Ghana and the Departments of Veterinary Biochemistry and Physiology and Veterinary Pathology, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Ibadan, Nigeria is organising the First West African Regional Workshop on Oxidative Stress and Immunohistochemistry Techniques (Theory and Practice).
Oxidative stress has been identified as key pathological basis of several human and animal diseases; thus, mechanisms aimed at arresting this are prominent in many research designs. Similarly, immunohistochemical techniques, which involves identification of cytokines and protein expression patterns (in inflammation, apoptosis, etc) have become very important in diagnosis and prognosis as well key mechanisms in disease treatment. Thus, this workshop seeks to introduce participants to
- Key theoretical and practical concepts in oxidative stress analyses (pro- and antioxidants)
- Tissue preparation, staining techniques and analyses of immunohistochemical slides
- Research design involving such techniques in cell-free and whole organism research
Scientists and graduate students involved in biomedical research of human and animal subjects from Universities, Hospitals and Research Institutes across the West African Sub-region
Dates: Tuesday 11th and Wednesday 12th September 2018
Time: 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day
Venue: College of Science, KNUST, Kumasi
Each participant shall be required to pay a registration fee. Payment shall be made by Bank Deposit to a designated College of Science Account.
