CBAM 1320 Lectures in Histology ()


Credits: 3

Course Description:

Histology is the study at the microscopic level of the organization of cells in tissues and organs. This organization sets up the foundational principles underlying normal physiology and, from a clinical perspective, why alterations may lead to known pathologies. One goal is for students to appreciate why the spatial arrangement of tissues with organs elaborates physiologic function. During the course, the focus will be on the arrangement of tissues within various physiological systems, including cardiovascular, respiratory, gastroenterology, urinary, reproductive, endocrine, and sensory. Throughout students will be introduced to a variety of microscopic techniques, including light and electron microscopy and immunohistochemistry and immunofluorescence microscopy.


Lectures: 3hrs/wk. Letter-graded.
