Web Atlas Menu of Histology topics

These photos were taken by Dr. Gwen Childs to help medical and graduate students learn microanatomy. The slides are from the slide set used by the medical students at the University of Texas Medical Branch.  We hope they will guide you in your study of the structures and help you with the laboratory material.
