This online course will help you understand the basic principles of light microscopy, before introducing you to histology, concentrating on the structure, function and relationship of normal human tissues.

You will gain access to a virtual microscope, enabling you to compare normal tissues with pathological (or diseased) tissues, and find out how pathologists use histopathology, to examine tissues at a microscopic level and identify disease.

By the end of the course, you will be able to:
• understand the basic principles of microscopy
• identify a number of the more common tissues from their histological appearance
• relate the structure of tissues seen under the microscope to their function
• identify gross abnormalities, such as neurodegeneration, inflammation and cancer
