Amazing Anatomy, Fascinating Facts and Mind-Boggling Bodies (2020)

Note: This is previously year's content. Please see Events for 2021 event information.

Description: Anatomy is all about the study of the human body, understanding the structures of the body and the relationships between them. It is such a fascinating subject – who doesn’t want to know how they can move around, how they breath, what is going on inside their body?

There are different subjects related to anatomy, all very exciting and all very important in improving our understanding of the human body – these include forensic anthropology, forensic archaeology and medical and forensic art. At the Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification at the University of Dundee, all of these subjects come together in a vibrant department with staff contributing to ground-breaking changes in forensic anthropology, anatomical knowledge exchange, imaging, and improved surgical procedures.

Anatomists and forensic anthropologists can use their knowledge of the human body in many different ways – to teach medical, dental and science students, to improve understanding of the body, to analyse human remains for the medico-legal purpose of establishing identity including during mass disasters and war crimes, while Forensic Artists can present visual information in relation to legal procedures and Medical Artists can specialise in patient communication and information as well as contributing to medical teaching and training.

One of the things we love to do the most though, is to get you interested in the human body! We have a few activities for you to try out, and will share some fascinating facts about the human body with you.

Sponsor: Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification, School of Science and Engineering, University of Dundee.
