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 by conventional stainings as well as cell interactions with immunohistological stainings. 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 theoretical knowledge on tissue samples including the tissue embedding process, the preparation of plastic and paraffin sections, different conventional and immunohistological staining procedures, microscopy and histomorphometry. An insight into nanoindentation and confocal microscopy 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, histomorphometry, nanoindentation, confocal microscopy
