Description of the Workshops:
To provide intensive, hands-on training in the cutting-edge technologies of confocal microscopy and quantitative histology using design-based stereology. Evening sessions offer individual training and project consultation
Extensive group discussion- participants are encouraged to bring their own material and to discuss their projects
Who Should Attend
- Graduate students who need to use modern microscopy or stereology in their projects
- Postdoctoral fellows who would benefit from a comprehensive introduction to microscopy and stereology
- Young investigators who need to incorporate these analytical approaches into their labs
- Investigators new to histological analysis who need a rapid and complete introduction to these techniques
