Webinar: Eyes Wide Shut! A virtual rodent dissection 2.0

Presenter: Dr. Stuart Mitchell

Eyes Wide Shut! A virtual rodent dissection 2.0 

As both a reservoir and vector of numerous diseases, the rat is responsible for enormous loss of life, food, and property. Even today, in both agriculture and urban centers, there is a constant battle between humans and rats. It is difficult to determine which side is winning.

The rat is the most widely used animal in experimental studies. Areas of study include disease pathology, biological assay, and nutritional and behavioral research.

As an essential part of IPM, correct pest ID establishes the bases upon which all-successive pest management decisions are made. Poor ID, poor pest management!

Given the increasing liability of "getting the pest ID wrong,” it is important that the species is correctly identified through a "reasonable degree of industry standard of practice or standard of care." In some cases, getting it wrong may get you sued!

In this unique program, attendees will observe virtual dissections of a male and female rat. For most PMPs, rats are a well-understood, pestiferous foe. However, with a new perspective, we may see that we have observed rats with Eyes Wide Shut!
