Immunohistochemistry and Microscopy (IHCM) Advanced Research Training Course, Germantown, Maryland 
This course will provide students with the information and skills required to perform robust and reproducible studies using immunohistochemistry. Students will be exposed to chromogenic and fluorescence immunohistochemical methods that will be visualized with bright-field and epi-fluorescence microscopes. This advanced research course will be 5 days (~10 hours per day) and will include both class room lectures, hands-on training using formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissues, various combinations of antibodies and detection systems, and imaging sessions of positively immunostained tissues generated by students in the laboratory. Throughout the course, participants will be receiving feedback from experts and will be involved in discussions on assay development and troubleshooting. This course is appropriate for beginning scientists and those with more advanced skills, including undergraduate and graduate students, laboratory technicians, postdoctoral researchers, and new and established faculty/clinicians seeking to gain comprehensive training in immunohistochemistry and a better understanding of microscopy techniques and digital imaging. Participants will be grouped appropriately. Registration is limited to thirty students. Travel Awards Will Be Available.
