1st Olympus Stereology Course

Barcelona, Spain

1st Olympus Stereology Course

Objective of the course: This course presents theory and practical techniques of stereology for obtaining reliable quantitative data from samples of 3D structures. These structures can be homogeneous or heterogeneous. The focus is on applications in biosciences. Challenges and opportunities for non-destructive measurements at microscopic versus macroscopic scales will be highlighted. Theory of general stereology including the determination of number, connectivity, length, surface, and volume using microscopy and other bioimaging techniques; Optimization of multistage designs; Computer-assisted stereology and software.

The course is an intense 3-day learning experience, which includes lectures and hands on exercises each day. Lectures on each topic will be followed by hands-on exercises. Participants are encouraged to present their own projects for discussion.

Faculty of teachers:

The staff at the Stereology Course are professional stereologists. Among them are research scientists, award winning teachers, and clinicians who have made significant contributions to the field of design based stereology and have first hand experience applying these methods.

Their comon interests and varied backgrounds provide a workshop atmosphere that is conducive to teaching design based stereology to individuals with a wide range of previous experience with stereology and permits a wide range of specific applications to be discussed in detail during the course.

The course is hosted by Mara Dierssen of Centre de Regulació Genòmica (CRG), Barcelona and the faculty of teachers will be:

-Hans Jorgen G. Gundersen, Stereological Research Laboratory, University of Aarhus, Aarhus, Denmark
-Jens R. Nyengaard, Stereological and Electron Microscopy Laboratory, University of Aarhus, Aarhus, Denmark
-Carlos Avedaño, Dpto. Anatomía, Histología y Neurociencia, Fac. de Medicina, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Madrid, Spain
