The liver under the microscope

Professor Stefan Hubscher, one of the Birmingham Liver Pathologists examines samples of liver under the microscope.

Your task: Watch this video in which Professor Stefan Hubscher, a liver Pathologist in Birmingham, examines a sample of liver under the microscope and describes the micro-anatomy of both a healthy and an unhealthy liver. The cells he mentions will feature in much of the material we will cover in the remainder of the course. You might find that the pointer he uses is quite tricky to see on the video so we have labelled the images in the transcript file to help you identify the structures he describes.
