Museum of Anatomy, Anatomy Facility, Thomson Building, University of Glasgow
The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, the University of Glasgow’s Anatomy Facility, the Hunterian Museum and the School of Simulation and Visualisation are collaborating for a special event in this unique venue! Join us for a range of demonstrations, displays and interactives showing how we have visualised, studied and taught human anatomy over the centuries, from William Hunter in the 18th Century to the latest in digital visualisation. Participate in anatomical body painting, augmented reality and virtual reality simulation. Introduced by Dr Paul Rea and Professor Fabio Quondamatteo from the Anatomy Facility. The opening and introductions will start at 18:00 in the Large Lecture Theatre in the Thomson Building, then we will move through to the Museum of Anatomy.
We shall have stands covering the following areas that you can explore:
1. Hunter and Cleland specimens
Explore unique historical anatomical specimens dating from the 1700’s and 1800’s, unique to us here in the Museum of Anatomy. These are original specimens from the collections of William Hunter and John Cleland, renowned anatomists from the 18th and 19th centuries respectively.
2. William Macewen – Innovation in surgery
Find out about one of Glasgow’s most influential surgeons, Sir William Macewen. Through current visualisation technology, learn how Macewen advanced several fields of surgery in the 19th and 20th centuries, from neurosurgery to orthopaedics.
This process was invented in the late 1970’s enabling us to preserve specimens for use in teaching and research. View specimens of the human body which have been preserved by this very special technique.
4. Surgical advances
Come here to chat with a surgeon who uses innovative technologies to help plan operations including techniques like 3D printing and modern-day equipment to benefit the patient.
5. Visualising Medical Heritage project
Our Visualising Medical Heritage Project brings medical history to life, enabling enhanced access to our museum collection through cutting edge visualisation technology. Learn about Glasgow’s rich medical history and the major role that Glasgow practitioners have played in advancing healthcare practice.
6. Anatomical Body Painting
Art-Beat, Art & Anatomy Edinburgh, an association of Anatomy@Edinburgh link medical students and the public to local medical professionals and artists to help in the understanding of human anatomy through artistic methods.
7. Medical Visualisation and Human Anatomy
Here you can try digital technologies which are cutting edge in exploring the anatomy of the human body. Try techniques like virtual reality and augmented reality in conjunction with staff from the School of Simulation and Visualisation, The Glasgow School of Art.
