University of Bern, Switzerland
22 August 2016 - 28 August 2016

Information and registration on


This course provides an introduction to state-of-the-art stereology with emphasis on its practical application in biomedicine. Experimental design, sampling, use of stereological probes, estimation of stereological parameters, and the application of statistical methods appropriate for stereology are covered. The course encompasses lectures, classroom exercises with real biomedical images, and laboratory practicals demonstrating the implementation of proper sampling and processing techniques on real biological organs.

This course is intended for students and researchers from the field of biology and medicine interested in sampling and measurement of 3D structures. Applications involving any kind of microscopy (e.g. light microscopy, confocal laser scanning microscopy, multi-photon microscopy, electron microscopy) as well as non-invasive scanning techniques like CT and NMR are welcome.

Participants should bring their specific projects and questions. During the course, there will be ample opportunity for discussions with the instructors.
