Wetlabs

Wetlabs are designed to provide  a hands-on and interactive experience between the attendees and world class experts.

They will be offered in varied areas including dermatoscopy, cytology (two levels, with the advanced level including challenging neoplasias) and dermatopathology.

The dermatopathology wetlab is run by the ISVD and encompasses two levels of difficulty; the advanced level is recommended for those with a detailed knowledge of dermatopathology.  

Wetlab 1 - Dermatoscopy


Thursday June 2nd, morning, 08:30 – 10:00

Leader: Fabia Scarampella

This is the first ever veterinary dermatoscopy wetlab, this is a new technique in veterinary dermatology.  Fabia Scarampella is a pioneer in this field and is a gifted and sought after lecturer.  She will share her knoweldge and experience in an introductory lecture and then the participants will move to "hands on".  Live animals will not be available.

Dermatoscopes kindly supplied by Heine and Eikemeier  

Wetlab 2 - ISVD #1  Basic Dermatopathology  Microscope Lab


Thursday June 2nd,  afternoon, 14:00 – 18:00

Prof. Monika Welle is regarded by some as the grandmother of dermatopathology wetlabs, she has conducted almost every basic wetlab at past World Congresses and many other sessions for both dermatology and pathology residents over the past decade - in addition to her own mentoring within her department.  The level is directed toward basic or beginner pathologists or dermatologists - but that does not mean the diseases viwed are "easy" - rather the conditions are those which must be recognisable to anyone working within the field of dermatopathology.  This wetlab is ideal for clinicians with a decent background in dermatology and who wish to understand how better to interpret their pathology reports, for dermatology or pathology residents, but it is also appropriate for a pathologist who has little previous interest in dermpath.  

Wetlab 3  - ISVD #2  Advanced Dermatopathology Microscope Lab


Friday June 3rd  morning  08:30 – 12:30

Dr. Thelma Lee Gross and Professor Verena Affolter are co-leaders, this is a cutting edge session and previous specific dermatopathology training / experience / interest is recommended.  Slides will be available via a scanscope link which will be sent to participants 4 weeks prior to the meeting.  Glass slides will be available on the day.  Sharing of microscopes is to be expected.

Wetlab #4 - Cytology Wetlab For Clinicians - (basic)


Saturday June 3rd morning  08:30 – 12:30

Dr Kacie Stetina is the leader of this session, she works at the busiest dermatology practice in the world, where many of the dermatology cytology techniques were perfected.  Reading of impression smears, aspirates, all sampled, prepared and interpretable in a practice setting, is the aim of this session.  

Wetlab #5 - Allergen identification for ASIT


Friday June 3rd  afternoon  14:00 – 18:00

Brett Wildermuth is the leader of this wetlab.  Brett has a longstanding and deep interest in allergen identification and experience in both North America and Europe with regard to pollen and environmental allergen relevance.  This wetlab will give an introduction to allergen identification and things you may want to know about allergens.  Identifying pollen requires extensive training (not the goal of an introductory wetlab), however there are basic features that help to classify pollen as weed, tree or grass.  This course will begin with an introductory lecture and will then have registrants rotate among different stations.  Each station will have a microscopic slide of an allergen as well as practical information relevant to the assessment of the role of the allergen as a possible cause of disease.  

Wetlab #6 - Cytology Wetlab - advanced


Saturday June 4th  afternoon  14:00 – 18:00

Dr Kurt Sick is the leader of this session, he heads one of the state government laboratories in Austria and has a strong and longterm interest in dermatology oriented cytology and dermatopathology.  He is a gifted and enabling teacher who thoroughly enjoys sharing his extensive knowledge. Impression smears, aspirates, all sampled, prepared and interpretable within a practice setting is the aim of this session, however basic cytologic experience is necessary to get the most out of this wetlab and some tumour cytology will be included.
