Night at the Museum 4

The Anatomy Facility has teamed up with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow (RCPSG) and the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH) to bring you the latest installment in the popular Night at the Museum series.

Titled The Evolution of Anatomical Education, the fourth chapter will employ a slightly different format than previous incarnations by having an invited speaker, our esteemed colleague Professor Stuart McDonald, as well as the usual stalls.

Prof McDonald, who boasts a wealth of expertise in the forensic setting, historical anatomy and clinically applied anatomy, will deliver a lecture on the many colourful characters who have taught students and developed the discipline in Glasgow.

Starting with the appointment in 1720 of the first Professor of Anatomy and Botany, Thomas Brisbane, he will guide the audience through associations with William Hunter, the turbulent years of the body-snatching era, the move of anatomical teaching from the Old University on the High Street to Gilmorehill, and the technological developments since the 19th Century.

The evening will then move through to the popular collection of stalls in the Museum of Anatomy, and these include:

  • Historical Anatomical Books and Virtual Anatomy Museum
    Dr Jenny Clancy (School of Life Sciences, University of Glasgow) and Kirsty Earley (RCPSG)
  • Maxillofacial Prosthetics
    Barbara Anne Thomson (QEUH)
  • Ultrasound: the new stethoscope
    Dr Ourania Varsou (School of Life Sciences, University of Glasgow)
