Learning outcomes

MM: PATOLOGIA MOLECOLARE
------------------------
Learning cyto- histochemical techniques detecting DNA abnormalities for diagnostics, prognostication and predictiveness
------------------------
MM: METODI E TECNICHE DI COLPOCITOLOGIA
------------------------
To give to the student the cognitive and methodological tools needed to carry out the role of B Biomedical Laboratory Technician in the management and reading of Pap Test and evaluation of the T quality of screening of Cervical Cancer.
------------------------
MM: CITOPATOLOGIA
------------------------
Learning major cytopathological findings from inflammatory and neoplastic diseases
------------------------
MM: IMMUNOISTOCHIMICA
------------------------
Biological processess as basis of immunoreactions Knowledge of antigens, clones and commercially available antibodies Pro- and cons- of reactions on formalin fixed and paraffin embedded tissue Interpretative phase of immunoprofliling
------------------------
MM: ISTOPATOLOGIA
------------------------
The student will learn the anatomo-clinical correlations of the most important inflammatory and neoplastic diseases of the digestive and endocrine system. He must be able to correlate the pathological alterations with the clinical course of the disease and to find the rational for the diagnostic and prognostic evaluations.
