Other H&E news

From:Lee & Peggy Wenk

Also, in conjunction with my other email about the H&E article, just a
reminder that the June NSH teleconference will be on troubleshooting H&E.

June 19, 2002 - Basic Troubleshooting of the H&E Stain
The ability to accurately access and resolve problems is an important asset
within the histology field.  In this presentation we will discover the
diagnostic problems with the basic H&E is not so basic.  Staining problems
may be a result of fixation, processing or the staining process itself.  A
flowchart will be developed and used to troubleshoot some examples of
problems commonly encountered.

Also, there is still time to sign up for the May NSH teleconference:

May 15, 2002 - Cytochemical Detection of Apoptotic Cell Death
The detection of cell death has recently gained central importance in the
study of various diseases, such as cancer and neurodegenerative diseases
(e.g. Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases). Cells undergo death by two
major mechanisms: necrosis, in which primary damage to the metabolic or
membrane integrity of the cell occurs, or apoptosis, which is an internal
suicide program contained in all cells.  This presentation will summarize
the knowledge about apoptotic pathways, and will discuss the
immunohistochemistry of caspase-cleaved epitope antibodies in paraffin
sections of tissues.
   Presenter: Mark C. Willingham, M.D.

   Winston-Salem, NC

And yes, I am the NSH Teleconference Coordinator. But no, I don't get any
money for this job. I just believe in sharing knowledge, and NSH
teleconferences are an easy, cheap way to do this($90/teleconference/lab +
cost of phone call for all the people in your lab to receive continuing
education). (Shameless plug!)
