Cell Biology

The Department for Anatomy and Cell Biology at the BMC in Martinsried (chair Prof. Michael Kiebler) takes part in teaching medical students in their preclinical semesters. The courses are organized in the form of lectures, seminars and practical courses in histology, neuroanatomy and organ-centered micro- and macroscopic anatomy. In histology we offer theoretical and practical courses at the microscope that teach students the structure and function of cells, tissues and organs. Both organ and written examination on different histology topics take place during or at the end of the course. In addition, the Department offers neuroanatomy courses for second semester students at the BMC. It takes place as a 6-week intensive block. The course includes the structure and function of the nervous system finishes with a written exam at the end of the course. The organ-centered anatomy seminars, which are organized by our Department, are taught in the fourth preclinical semester. The course is held at the BMC in an intensive format of five weeks in collaboration with the two other departments of anatomy. The aim is to teach microscopic and macroscopic anatomy from an organ-centered perspective including biochemical and physiological aspects, thus further strengthening the students’ knowledge of anatomy, biochemistry and physiology. 
For further information on the course of studies, please refer to the pages of the MeCum-Moodle platform of the Medical Faculty of LMU. Back to the teaching main site.
