The next Virtual International Workshop on Confocal Microscopy and Quantitative Histology will be August 7-11, 2023
Background of the Virtual Workshop
After holding in-person workshops since 2003, the academic portion of the workshops has been changed to a virtual format. As a result of the Covid pandemic, the August 2020 Workshop was the first held as a virtual event. The change to a virtual format proved to be very popular as participants could remain active in the lab outside of actual session times and there are substantial savings of time and resources without having to travel to Chicago. Workshops are now offered in two separate components- a virtual academic portion and an advanced, hands-on practical portion. The hands-on sessions are to be intensive 2-3 day workshops using actual state-of-the-art imaging systems using prepared samples and participant’s own samples. The hands-on sessions are currently being planned and updates will be posted on this site. Download the restructured syllabus for detailed information.

The use of multipotent stem or progenitor cells offers great hope for treating injury or disease in many organ systems, including the brain and spinal cord. The development of therapeutic strategies for use of neural stem cells may rely on the ability to recruit or reprogram endogenous neural stem cells within the adult brain or may be achieved through the transplantation of identified populations of neural stem cells into injured brain regions. Success in developing clinical treatments will depend upon basic research. NeuroRenew, Inc. offers expert consultation and training in the analysis of neural stem cells in animal models for academia or industry.
NeuroRenew, Inc. provides consultation and training for biomedical research into the use of stem cells for brain repair and in the regulation of neurogenesis in the adult brain. We are not involved in clinical trials at the present time.
NeuroRenew, Inc. also conducts intensive, multi-day, hands-on training workshops in the use of confocal microscopy and design-based stereology. These techniques are critical for cutting-edge qualitative and quantitative histological analysis for biomedical research. One day short courses may be offered in conjunction with major scientific meetings.
