Our staff members teach students the structures of the human body at the level of resolution obtained with light and electron microscopes. This focus is divided into three main areas:

  • Cells (cell biology/cytology)
  • Tissue (histology)
  • Microscopic anatomy of the organs

Interaction: Teaching and research

It is important that students recognize and learn how form and function are related, how changes in form cause a change in function and how changes in function change the form. In addition, they must understand the development of all these structures during the embryonic and fetal periods (embryology). With regard to all these aspects, a constant interaction between research and teaching is imperative. The interdisciplinary interaction between the Division of Cell Biology, Histology and Embryology and the divisions within the Gottfried Schatz Research Center and the D&R Institute of Human Genetics at the Medical University of Graz are reflected in the numerous required modules and tracks as well as in the electives in the curriculum.

Postgraduate education and training

In addition to standard degree programs, we are especially keen to provide a better understanding of cell biology, histology and embryology in postgraduate courses.
