SCSK 526 Applied Cell Biology and Histology

Jacques Gilloteaux, PhD

Using basic knowledge acquired in Cell Biology and Histology during the first term of the four-year medical program, selective students during their second term explore in more depth some of the topics related to medical applications in applied cell biology, histology of the human body, as well as applying advanced morphological and related ancillary techniques. The Applied Cell Biology and Histology selective will review six major areas of cell, tissue, and organ system investigations, as they can be relevant to reinforce cell biology and histology knowledge. Students are also introduced to principles of clinical histopathology. Students are given the opportunity to critically read publications in these topics to discuss and review the reports or presentations of morphological data acquired in view of understanding their clinical implications.
