Enrollment in this course is by invitation only

About This (5ECTS) Course, which is part of the "Open Educational Resources in Computational Biomedicine" (OERCompBiomed) project conducted by the NordBioMed.org and funded by Erasmus+.

After the course the students: 1) Know the theory behind the basic pathological concepts such as adaptation, cell injury, inflammation and neoplasia, 2) Recognize the basic pathological lesions such as adaptation, cell injury, inflammation and neoplasia in histological tissue samples, 3) Know the species-specific differences in the manifestation of the basic pathological lesions (mouse versus human), 4) Understand how mouse can be applied in modelling human diseases, 5) Are able to produce comparative disease model pathology material based on given virtual microscopy samples.

For more information, please contact Leena Strauss (leesal@utu.fi) or Taija Heinosalo (tsalon@utu.fi)

Requirements

Students are recommended to participate and complete the course “Introduction to Translational Pathology” or to acquire corresponding skills somewhere else (know mouse histology, are aware of spontaneous pathological alterations in different mouse strains, know the most relevant differences between mouse and human histology), but basic knowledge in histology is enough!
