Map and Directions

The purpose of this intensive, week-long workshop is to provide a comprehensive background in the theory and practice of modern histological preparation and microscopic analysis for researchers in biomedical science.  The workshop provides a practical tutorial in all aspects of microscopic analysis including experimental design, specimen preparation, use of fluorescence and confocal microscopes, design-based stereology, and image preparation for scientific publication.  A variety of microscopes equipped for stereology are available for use.  Participants should bring examples of their material and problems for discussion.  In addition to lectures, substantial time is devoted to “hands-on” practical sessions.  Attendees participate in group discussion, where they can discuss their research applications and consult with the instructors.
