Enrolment in Master´s programme Molecular Biomedicine
Goals of the Module:
Upon successful completion of this module, students know and understand cellular and subcellular structures and their function in the human body.

++ deepened biological expertise
++ deepened clinical / pathological expertise
++ deepened knowledge of biological working methods
++ deepened knowledge of clinical / pathological diagnostics
  + interdisciplinary thinking
  + critical and analytical thinking
  + ability to perform independent biological research
  + ethics and professional behaviour

The module aims to give students an insight into microscopic functional anatomy. In this module, we will cover aspects of cell compartmentalisation and tissue organisation as the basis for normal function and homeostasis. In addition, we will cover examples of organ organisation and organ function. To introduce students to clinical concepts, and to deepen their understanding of the functional roles of cells and tissues, we will also cover aspects of the pathological basis of disease for selected organs and organelles.

In the accompanying seminar, students will have the chance to work on light and electron microscopic pictures, to practice annotation and identification of cells and tissues. In addition, the students will read and present original literature. This will introduce select aspects of disease, but also introduce research methodology and scientific thinking.

This course is not a full histology course, but it serves as an introduction to the topic, recapitulates aspects of cell biology and introduces a few select aspects of pathology. Thus, this module is aimed at students with little experience in cell biology.
