Biography

Dr Ourania Varsou is a lecturer in Anatomy at the School of Life Sciences and holds a BSc and an MBChB.

Ourania completed her PhD at the Aberdeen Biomedical Imaging Centre, under the supervision of Dr Mary Joan Macleod and Professor Christian Schwarzbauer, with a project investigating new functional and structural magnetic resonance imaging measures for patients with minor acute focal neurology.

Holder of a PgCert, an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, and a University of Glasgow RET fellow, Ourania teaches anatomy to science, medical and dental students, from sub-honours to honours levels, with her specialist areas including head and neck region, and imaging.

Ourania is a strong advocator of medical humanities and serves as an elected member of the international steering committee for The Doctor as a Humanist (DASH).

In 2020, she was invited to join the Royal Society of Edinburgh Young Academy of Scotland, where Ourania will serve as a member for five years.

She also represents the College of Medical, Veterinary & Life Sciences (MVLS), alongside another colleague, on the University Library Committee.

If you have any queries, please contact Ourania by email.

Research interests

Ourania’s main research includes imaging with a strong focus on ultrasound, clinically-applied anatomy and scholarship of teaching and learning on medical humanities, object-based learning and the anatomy-art relationship.
