Modules are organized according to the requirements of the Dublin Descriptors (D1-D5):
The module aims to bring the student to know and understand the basic principles for the correct handling and processing of histological and cytological samples, as well as the theoretical bases of morphological, immunohistochemical and molecular biology techniques to support cytopathology. In lab sessions the student will have the opportunity to apply the knowledge gained during the theoretical lesson.
The student will acquire:
ability to develop the theoretical basis to follow the evolution of scientific knowledge in the technical and instrumental field applied to Pathological Anatomy, in order to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the activities that characterize a Histopathology lab, including innovative techniques molecules that respond to growing demands in the field of diagnostic and oncological therapy.
DIAGNOSTICA DELLE TSE ANIMALI
The module organized according to the requirements of the Dublin Descriptors (D1-D5), aims to provide the student with the basic knowledge to understand the pathologies of unconventional agents (prions) in domestic animals and wildlife. The module aims to make the student independent in the choices of biomolecular analytical methods in the diagnosis of TSEs and to develop, independently of judgment, the communicative capacity of the results.
TECNICHE IN CITODIAGNOSTICA
Provide the student with the knowledge and understanding of the aims, advantages and limitations of diagnostic cytology, cytological sample preparation techniques and basic cognitive principles.
TECNICHE E PARAMETRI IMMUNOLOGICI
The student must know and have competence on the cellular and molecular aspects by which the innate and specific immune responses develop and he will autonomously be able to apply these skills in the evaluation of parameters that define the efficiency of the immune response against infective pathogens, through the use of immunological techniques.
TECNICHE MOLECOLARI IN DIAGNOSTICA GENETICA
The module developes in the student knowledge and understanding about nucleic acid kinetic mechanisms as the general basis of molecular diagnosis. Human genomic investigation methods. The choice of the method to be used in relation to diagnostic needs. Applying this knowledge acquired critically, the student must be able to use the most popular molecular analysis methods. Use open access bio-computer programs.
