Pathobiology and Toxicological Pathology

Aim of the course:

At the end of the course Pathobiology & Toxicological Pathology, the participants will have a basic understanding of general and toxicological pathology and will have acquired sufficient knowledge to understand and interpret pathological data in papers and reports. During the course, the fundamental processes of tissue degeneration, cell pathology, inflammation, circulation disturbances and tumour development will be addressed in a series of lectures and practical sessions. Special attention will be given to the underlying mechanisms of pathology, induced by xenobiotics. After finishing this course, the participants will have a basic understanding of:

– The anatomy and histology of commonly used laboratory animals.
– The principal aspects of tissue degeneration, cellular pathology, inflammatory reactions, circulatory problems and neoplasia.
– The macroscopic and microscopic aspects of several pathological processes.
– The general procedures used in clinical/diagnostic and toxicological pathology.
