PD Dr. Jörg Müller
Prof. Dr. Karl-Heinz Friedrich, Prof. Dr. Regine Heller, Prof. Dr. Christian Mawrin, PD Dr. Jörg Müller, Prof. Dr. Ignacio Rubio
This module is part of the M.Sc. Molecular Medicine programme (MolMed O.4), but is offered also to students of the M.Sc. Medical photonics programme.
Lectures will cover the molecular basis of pathogenesis and therapy of important disease entities. These involve cancer, cardiovascular, and infectious diseases.
Basic terms of pathology and the position of this discipline in research and patient care will be explained. Distinguishing different types of cell and tissue lesions will be demonstrated with the help of macroscopic and microscopic tissue preparations. The use of microscopy to judge histological preparations will be practised in exercises.
