The SRC’s workshops, courses and monthly webinars have been providing stereology proficiency to bioscientists and computer programmers for over 20 years. Our instructors know how to convey their understanding, decades of personal experience and practical knowledge in the applications of unbiased stereology to biological sciences.

Peer-reviewed Stereology Books
Principles And Practices Of Unbiased Stereology: An Introductions For Bioscientists (2002), Johns Hopkins University Press, Baltimore MD, USA. This book is a valuable addition to the current literature on stereologic methods. Beginners will find it useful and easy to read. The text also offers an excellent support for stereology courses as it provides the reader with sufficient technical background without being overwhelming with mathematical details, and is designed for a ‘hands-on’ approach to learning stereologic methods, unlike other books on the subject. The author’s expertise is in neurobiology and neuropathology, but clearly this book is not targeting only ‘neurostereologists’; investigators from all domains of biology, as well as geologists, material scientists, and engineers, will benefit from reading and using it.
