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