ANATOMICAL MODELS

AN EXHIBITION

16–18 SEPTEMBER 1-3:30 PM

DEPARTMENT OF PHYSIOLOGY, DEVELOPMENT AND NEUROSCIENCE, ANATOMY BUILDING, DOWNING SITE

What is an anatomical model, and how do you make one? How are these models used in teaching and research? Take a short tour to explore some of the most interesting anatomical models in our collection.

Learn how models were first made from wax, but now can be completely digital! Meet our anatomical demonstrators to talk about their work and research at a University department.

You will not look at your own body in the same way again!

We can offer up to 4 tours per day for a maximum of 12 students per group. Recommended age is 14 and up. Some models feature real body parts so visitor discretion is advised.

If you are interested in booking, please contact comms@pdn.cam.ac.uk or call 01223 333821 to reserve a timeslot. Places are limited.

HERE IS WHAT YOU WILL EXPERIENCE...

  • A huge horse heart, used by our academics to teach veterinary anatomy
  • A wax model of a human abdomen and other anatomical art pieces
  • A fully digital, interactive recreation of a human brain reconstructed in gaming software
  • A selection of models that you can take apart to see the inside of organs

 And more!

At 5:30PM each day there also will be brief talks in the Anatomy Lecture Theatre with our anatomists and academics. This is a separate event, which students can attend individually - you do not need to attend the talks in order to also visit the exhibition.
