Connective Tissue

Connective Tissue

by Geoffrey Meyer, PhD

Connective tissues serve vital roles in the body. They form a framework to support organs and bind structures, store fat, transport substances throughout the body, and help to repair tissue. Diseases of the connective tissue can occur in nearly any of its components and often lead to multisystem dysfunction, including autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, and lupus.

Thanks doc, very useful for my exam that is coming up

By Saabira A. on 21. May 2021 for Connective Tissue

It really allowed me to understand the tricky areas in my book. Also, I prefer watching videos to reading, so this allowed me to keep on track with my revision. Lastly, I really like how the lecturer provides context and explanations for the things he mentions. It's not really something I get in school.

All of the lectures by prof. Meyer are absolute blast and great experience.
