This month we will be uploading the newest addition to our free e-book collection: a Portuguese translation of Gardiner’s Atlas of Metazoan Parasites in Animal Tissues generously translated by Dr. Igor Santos, a pathology resident at Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil. The book will be available for viewing for free on the website, but will require a (free) website login.
We are so grateful for all the hard work Dr. Santos put into this translation, and so pleased to be able to offer it to everyone. Here’s a little something about Igor, in his own words:
“Hi, I’m Igor. I grew up in the rural area of a quaint Brazilian Midwest town, where I developed a great fascination for animals (almost like a classic country boy). This passion propelled me to start my studies in veterinary at the Instituto Federal Goiano (IFGoiano) in 2015. As I delved deeper into the undergraduate disciplines, my curiosity for veterinary pathology grew, leading me to start a master’s degree at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) in 2020. During this period, I actively worked on diagnostic services and research projects involving different veterinary pathology fields. In 2022, I started the residency program in veterinary pathology at UFRGS. My current routine includes diagnostic services, rounds, and journal clubs. Despite having difficulty choosing specific areas of interest in pathology (please, don’t judge this young pathologist), I am very interested in the neoplasms of domestic animals. My recent research involves feline pulmonary carcinomas and the application of antibodies in imunohistochemical diagnosis.”
