Julie Randolph-Habecker, Ph.D., of Experimental Histopathology will be teaching a Fundamentals of Immunohistochemistry course March 18 - 20, 2014. The course is recommended for Center staff that use or plan to use immunohistochemistry data for their research. Attendees will gain a basic knowledge of the principles of the technique as well as information that is critical for the interpretation of immunohistochemistry data.

The first two days of the course will include details about antigens, antibodies, sample preparation, and basic immunohistochemistry including antibody titer, staining strategies, detection systems, antigen retrieval and appropriate controls. Finally, we will discuss strategies for troubleshooting.
