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 tissue with a special focus on musculoskeletal tissue and its regeneration. Evaluation of tissue processes can be achieved on a macroscopic level by conventional stainings, cell interactions with immunohistological stainings, and also on a microscopic level on cultured cells. 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. This course will introduce the basics in conventional tissue stainings as well as immunohistological and cell culture stainings; in addition, the possibilities of 3D histology will be presented. In the accompanying practical part, we will apply the basic knowledge on stained tissue sections of 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
