Summer Histology - Harlem

A summer histology seminar by Dr. Luis Vidal

Course Description

Histology is the study of the microscopic anatomy of cells, tissues and organs. In this four day course the student will understand the microanatomy of the fundamental tissues of the human body and correlate structure with function. The student's mastery of the course material is essential for future basic science training.

The first half of the course covers the microanatomy of the cell including membranes, cytoplasmic organelles, intracellular trafficking, the nucleus, the genome, cell division and cell cycle. In the second half the microanatomy and biology of epithelium, connective tissue (including blood and hemopoiesis) muscle, nerve tissue, cartilage and bone are covered. Lectures are presented in a fact-based format and supported with laboratory exercises designed to demonstrate an understanding of the ideas and concepts delivered in lecture.
