Unit for Anatomy, Pathology and Forensic Medicine

The group conducts research and teaches students in the areas of anatomy, histology, pathology and forensic medicine.

Laboratories

The Electron Microscopy Laboratory (EM-Lab): The laboratory has two transmission electron microscopes (TEMs). One of which is equipped with STEM and x-ray microanalysis. The scanning microscope has a built-in ultramicrotome for high resolution 3D volume reconstruction.

The Cell Laboratory: At this lab, cell cultivation is performed for various research projects. Techniques used include molecular genetics studies, micro-array, and electron microscopy.

The Histology Laboratory: The laboratory is a core facility at NTNU (the Cellular and Molecular Imaging Core facility (CMIC)), where researchers may place orders for histochemical , immunohistochemical and molecular genetics studies (such as in situ hybridisation).

The Anatomy Unit: The unit is responsible for the embalming and preparation of bodies donated for educational purposes (such as dissection).
