Mouse Pathology

Histology is the science of tissues and pathology. In a sense, it is also the science of diseases and their pathogenesis. The major concern of histologists working in our service unit is helping other HZI researchers make this connection and work out the details of the relationship between histological changes at the tissue level and the infectious diseases they are studying.

“Mouse pathology can give us an overview – offer a first glimpse, if you will – of the relationship between the infection and the immune response.“
