Educational Institution & Location

Professional Training

Dr. Mouton’s professional training includes a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University of South Florida (USF, Tampa, FL); one-year fellowship in neurobiology at the Karolinska Institute (Stockholm, Sweden) with Prof. dr. Lars Olson; two-year postdoctoral fellowship in Denmark with Professor Hans J.G. Gundersen; and a two-year NIH fellowship in Neuropathology with Professor Donald L. Price, M.D. at the Pathology Department at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (Baltimore MD). He subsequently served on faculty at the Hopkins Pathology Department for six years before establishing the Neurostereology of Brain Aging group at the Hopkins Bayview/National Institute on Aging campus in Baltimore. 

Contributions to Science

Through over two decades of leadership of SRC Biosciences and the Stereology Resource Center, Dr. Mouton has provided technology and research support to a generation of bioscientists in academia, government agencies and private industries. In 2010 he returned to Tampa where he continues to lead SRC Biosciences and serve on faculty as Professor of Stereology in the Department of Computer Sciences and Engineering at the University of South Florida.
