11.15.3  Course Synopses

VBA 801: Advanced Cytology (3 Credit Units)

An advanced course studying the morphology and function of cells. Emphasis is placed on the understanding and use of modern experimental techniques, analytical method of molecular biology, recent advances in cell biology and chemistry including manipulation and cloning and ultra structure of cells to describe and determine the function of organelles.

 

VBA 802: Applied Electron Microscopy (3 Credit Units)

Principles and techniques of routine tissue preparation procedures for light and transmission and scanning electron microscopy will be discussed and practicalized. History, mechanism and functional use of the electron microscope will be described.

 

VBA 803: Advanced Histology (3 Credit Units)

In-depth study of the microscopic and ultra structural morphology of tissues and organs. Comparative approach will be adopted in the study of various domestic animal species; the relationship of structure to function will be emphasized

 


VBA 804: Advanced  Histochemistry (3 Credit Units)

Basic principles and practice of cytochemistry, immunohistochemistry and autoradiography. Histochemical procedures including enzyme histochemistry for light microscopy, confocal microscopy and fluorescent microscopy will be emphasized. Students will be required to undertake a practical preparation of tissues using histochemistry techniques.

 

VBA 805: Advanced Developmental Biology (3 Credit Units)

Comparative embryology; modern concepts of differentiation and genetic regulation, micro- manipulative and labeling techniques of experimental embryology and post natal development.

 

VBA 806: Comparative Vertebrate Morphology (3 Credit Units)

An advanced course employing topical approach to vertebrate morphology, relating structure and function to vertebrate development, form, adaptation evolution and model systems. Emphasis will be placed on the anatomy of aquatic vertebrates

 

VBA 807: Ruminant Anatomy (3 Credit Units)

An advanced course in morphology of ruminants. Unique features of all systems of ruminant anatomy will be examined with particular focus on the digestive system.

 

VBA 808: Veterinary Neuroanatomy (3 Credit Units)

Study of the grosss morphology of the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) of domestic animals with detailed relevant clinical neurobiology, tracts and pathways of the spinal cord. The course will introduce basic concepts of Neuroscience as a field of study.

 

VBA 809: Comparative Veterinary Anatomy (3 Credit Units)       

Involves both gross and sub-gross techniques in comparative analysis of Veterinary species and laboratory animals in organ systems

 

VBA 810: Clinical Anatomy (3 Credit Units)

Advanced topographical morphology of domestic animals relating the structure of tissues, organs or body tissues to clinical Veterinary Medicine and Surgery. Each student shall prepare a paper based on morphologic investigation of clinical interest.

 


VBA 811: Avian Morphology (3 Credit Units)

Functional, comparative anatomy of domestic and pet birds. Emphasis will be placed on structure as related to function and adaptation of the different species.

 

VBA 812: Tissue Culture Techniques (3 Credit Units)

Types of cells, their growth patterns in various growth media and culture chambers and their application to basic medical research

 

VBA 814: Quantitative Enzyme Assays (3 Credit Units)

Involving methodologies for quantitative determination of enzymes including sub cellular fractions.

 

VBA 897: Thesis Seminar (Pre-data seminar) (1 Credit Unit)

A pre-data seminar on the research area of the student covering the title, objectives and scope of the work, review of relevant literature, experimental design and methodology

 

VBA 898: Thesis Seminar II (Post Data Seminar) (1 Credit Unit)

A follow-up seminar or post data or bench work findings. It should cover research findings detailed analysis and interpretation of research results, discussion of findings in view of previous reports and new ideas emanating from the study, conclusion and recommendation for future work.

 

VBA 899: Research Project (6 Credit Units)

An approved research project
