The module will take an integrated approach to studying normal tissue architecture and how this is affected by disease. The cell biology and physiology concepts and laboratory skills introduced in the autumn term will be built upon to develop a more detailed picture of how individual cells become specialised and organized into complex tissues. This will then be applied through an overview of the major disease states affecting these tissues, leading to an appreciation of the range of diseases that affect humans. There will be a practical emphasis in this module through both the lectures and in the practical classes.
