Examine tissues and identify disease with histology and histopathology
Histology is a key part of modern medicine – it helps us study cells and tissues at a microscopic level, and accurately diagnose diseases such as cancer.
This online course introduces the field. It starts with the basic principles of light microscopy, before focussing on the structure and function of human tissues, and the relationships between them.
You’ll use a virtual microscope to compare normal tissues with pathological (or diseased) ones, and use histopathology to identify and diagnose each disease.
The course was produced with the kind support of Dangoor Education.
This course is designed for medical laboratory scientists, and students who are studying human biology at university or school.
You’ll use a virtual microscope that will work on all modern browsers on both desktops and tablets. But we recommend completing the course on a desktop, so that you can see the tissues more clearly, and have course articles, images and videos open in different windows.
- Apply and understand the basic principles of microscopy,Identify a number of the more common tissues from their histological appearance,Assess and understand the relationship between the structure of some tissues seen under the microscope and their function,Identify gross histological abnormalities, such as neurodegeneration, inflammation and cancer
