Stereology Training and Workshops
For over two decades these stereology training and workshops have been the major resource for bioscientists worldwide interested in learning the principles and practices of unbiased (design-based) stereology.
Important topics include:
- efficient study designs and data collection using computerized systems.
- optimal tissue handling and histological procedures for stereological analysis.
- probe combinations to quantify cells, dendrites, capillaries and other biological structures.
- how to determine the optimal number of sections, animals and probes.
