Histology of bone regeneration
Optional or Mandatory: 
This course is optional for doctoral researchers at the BSRT
booked/available (including waiting list): 

This theoretical and practical basic histological course is designed for students from all scientific fields with no or just a minimal experience and background in histological analyses. The course will give an overview on the histology of connective tissue with special focus on bony tissue and its regeneration. In lectures, we will teach basic knowledge about tissue anatomy, tissue preparation, different common staining methods as well as the scientific benefit and application possibilities of histological analyses. In the accompanying practical part, we will apply the basic knowledge on stained tissue sections of regenerating tissue samples also including the tissue embedding process, the preparation of plastic and paraffin sections, different staining procedures, microscopy and histomorphometry. An insight into µCT analysis in the context of bone/tissue regeneration will also be included in the course.

Course Materials and Techniques: different tissue samples, tissue handling for histology, basic histological preparation and staining methods, microtome, microscope, µCT, histomorphometry
