Re: Immunohistochemistry texts revisited

From:Vinnie Della Speranza <>

Hi Victor,
I had the privilege of meeting Dr. True years ago when interviewing for a position at Yale.
Don't know if you have had a chance to view a copy of his atlas ( is there one on his shelf perhaps?). The term "atlas" almost does not do it justice. In addition to many very high quality photomicrographs of various immuno-stained markers, there is a wealth of technical and interpretive information. If it is out of print I suspect it will be difficult to find a used copy. Doubtful anyone would be willing to part with it. As I said earlier, I keep my copy in a very safe place. Condolences to those of you who are unable to get your hands on one.
Victor, any chance he's considering updating this valuable resource ? It belongs in everyone's collection of great references.
