Participants from nearly 20 states and three other countries came to Lynn Hall for the biennial workshop on bone marrow hosted by Department of Comparative Pathology faculty member Joanne Messick and Professor Emerita Rose Raskin.

A total of 40 clinical pathology professionals came to the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine from across the globe to participate in the biennial Bone Marrow Workshop.  Hosted by Dr. Joanne Messick, professor of veterinary clinical pathology, and Dr. Rose Raskin, professor emerita, the two-day workshop, August 11-12, gave participants the opportunity to review normal and pathologic bone marrow in companion animals via cytology and histology.  Attendees came from as far away as the State of Washington, Oregon, California, Florida, and North Carolina, as well as from the United Kingdom, Canada, and Brazil.

Blood and bone marrow data from case examples were used to demonstrate the correlation between the different methods of performing biopsies.  Participants learned through group discussions and personalized microscopy study, enabling them to gain confidence in evaluating bone marrow samples.  In addition to the hands-on educational training, the workshop provided attendees with valuable networking opportunities as well as an evening social gathering at Nine Irish Brothers.
