Design-based, unbiased stereology is the standard methodology for quantitative histology because it is particularly useful for the identification of subtle yet important alterations in the morphology of the nervous system during development or disease. MBF Bioscience has been in the business of stereology for more than ten years since the creation of Stereo Investigator, the most advanced and full-featured stereology package available.
MBF continues to take an active role in assisting researchers become proficient in this emerging methodology with the publication of the newly revised second edition of Stereology for Biological Research with a Focus on Neuroscience, a concise, accessible book written by MBF experts. It introduces design-based, unbiased stereology to scientists interested in, but not familiar with, the application of this methodology in neuroscience and other biomedical research fields.
Covering topics such as the prerequisites for stereology research, methodology for design-based stereology, application of design-based stereology in biomedical research (such as stem cell, lung, kidney research, and Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases) as well as the future of stereology, this text is an excellent first resource for scientists.

Susan J. Hendricks, Ph.D. is a Staff Scientist at MBF Bioscience. She has a broad interest in developmental neuroscience with a focus in neuroanatomy. Her dissertation research at the University of Virginia focused on the development of the rat gustatory system in the laboratory of David L. Hill. Postdoctoral training with Edwin W. Rubel at the University of Washington and Rae Nishi at the University of Vermont expanded her expertise in imaging and quantitative methods in the developing auditory system of the chick. Joining MBF Bioscience in 2005, she assumed the role of Staff Scientist, assisting product development and educational training in stereology.
