Satellite Symposium at SfN: Enhancing the Reproducibility of Your Research Results with Stereology

symposium

Recent headlines decry the alarming amount of irreproducible data in published research papers. MBF Bioscience is hosting a symposium addressing the topic on Sunday, October 18 at 6:30pm entitled “Quantitative Microscopy: Enhancing the Reproducibility of Your Research Results with Stereology.” This symposium, which is a satellite event at the annual Society for Neuroscience meeting, will address how researchers can use stereology to obtain accurate, reproducible data about their histological tissue specimens to drive meaningful discovery by the scientific community at large.

It will be an evening full of engaging speakers with significant expertise in various aspects of stereology, including: stereology theory, the application of stereology in neuroscience research, and why some funding agencies require stereology. Attendees will have a chance to interact with the speakers during the question and answer session following the presentations.

Stereology is the gold standard method for quantifying the number of cells, length of fibers, and the area and volume of structures or regions in tissue specimens. Attend this symposium to learn how it can help you obtain accurate, reproducible data for your research study.
