RE: [Histonet] where can I send my student?

From:"Bonner, Janet"

Well, she initially majored in the correct field of study to enter Histology.  A BS or MS is desirable with majors in Biology/Chemistry.  There are assorted schools/courses of study for Histology scattered about the US.  One is in Jacksonville, FL  and we have one here at Florida Hospital although we only take five students per year (and this coming year was just selected).  Indiana University also has a good program, which is the program we have connected to to teach our students. A search online should help as well.     Janet

Subject: [Histonet] where can I send my student?

Hi, folks, 

            I'm back after a long absence, and at a new address. 
Because I am only a psychologist, I have no idea where to send my 
student who really wants to spend  her life in a research laboratory 
doing histology!  She is currently graduating from Slippery Rock 
University with a degree in psychology, but I have sent her to the 
chemistry department and she has taken chemistry and is now taking  two 
organic chemistry classes as a post bac  in order to get herself 
somewhat more ready to do what she has discovered she loves to do. She 
has spent the last four years here with me doing work with mice, and is 
currently sectioning mouse brains on my ancient ultramicrotome and using 
a simple Richardson stain.  She loves working at the scope counting 
injured cells! 

            So, where can she go for additional training?  Is this 
something she needs a masters to do, or are there training programs 
available that will teach her immuno and fluorescent and all those other 
things that I've heard of but have no idea how to do? She's a fantastic 
young woman who washed mouse cages for me for over a year when we had no 
cage washer, and is very dedicated and willing to do the "grunt work" 
that others disdain.  Any suggestions?
