This semester (spring 2013) will be the last time I will offer Animal Histology in this traditional format. If all goes as planned, Histology will return at Rutgers as a new digitized, on-line laboratory course. Until then, these pages will continue to support the Animal Histology (146:322) course at Rutgers University. Use the following link for course information, including the lecture and lab schedule, announcements, old exams, and histology links on the web.
These are the PowerPoint Presentations used with my lectures. The information is presented with histological images taken by light microscopy, and augmented with transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) images.
These pages contain a number of digitized images for the study of histology. The images have been collected by Bruce Babiarz, PhD, Professor of Cell Biology & Neuroscience and Histology Instructor at Rutgers University. The following tissues and organ systems are available:
Each section is presented with a short descriptive text and links to labeled pictures. At the end of the section the images are presented again, in an unlabeled, lab practical format for review. The thee review sections, covering the material on Lab Practical Exams I, II, and III, each contain 6 practice exams with 10 scopes each.

All images were acquired using a Nikon Diaphot inverted microscope and Image Central Software in the Imaging Facility, Nelson Biological Labs, Rutgers University. Images were manipulated and labeled using Adobe Photoshop. All images are copyrighted and not available for general distribution.
