Provide the basic knowledge of the organization of the human body through the study of the the macroscopic and microscopic organization of the organs of the body systems. The approach to the study is faced moderating, where possible, the excess of the notions and discussing topics in active development and of interest for biological and pharmacological applications such as the study of stem cells and tissue regeneration. Special attention is devoted to the analysis of the microscopic organization of the various organs and the mutual relations between the tissues and the cells that constitute them, necessary for the comprehension of their functions and pathological alterations.
Animal and vegetal biology
Tools for Teaching: PC, projector, human organs, anatomical models
Type of Assessment
Oral examination aimed to evaluate the knowledge of the organization of the human body especially the macroscopic and microscopic organization of the organs of the body systems.
