An impending crisis in the provision of histopathology expertise for mouse functional genomics. J Pathol. 2009 Jan;217(1):4-13.. “…lack of trained pathologists and a lack of trainees entering the field” “…a significant proportion of vacant posts across Europe remain unfilled for 6 months or more, due to lack of qualified applicants, lack of funding” 2009: Really, you do need us….

Mice are not small humans A mouse is not a mouse is not a mouse Academic environment favors positive results prolific publication tight budgets promote small sample sizes Journals: do not enforce consistent design/interpretation standards Vet pathologists: need genetics/cell bio/research training
