Anatomy for the terrified!!!

Forget your biology textbook and see how key parts of your body work.

Perhaps – influenced by the tales of body snatchers and publicity seekers who have given it a bad name – you think that anatomy has been studied for hundreds of years, is no more than a dead science, and is altogether creepy. But in reality anatomy is the study of the most complex and awesome machine known to science and you are walking around in one! Join us for an evening of wonder as Susie shows us some amazing anatomical curiosities, including carrying out a heart dissection in our very own lecture theatre. Forget your biology textbook and see how key parts of your body work and how the latest technologies are helping us to explore our bodies through three dimensional representations of both the male and female forms.
