The Anatomical Society Winter 2015 meeting at Cambridge, UK (14th-16th December)


Back to the Future: Incorporating an Education Symposium "Establishing a Para-Curriculum in Anatomy"

The theme of this meeting will be the past, present and future of the pursuit of anatomical knowledge. The choice of Cambridge as the venue was prompted by two important landmarks: 2015 is the 450th anniversary of the first dissections at Gonville Hall in 1565, and 2016 marks the 300th anniversary of the opening of the first Anatomy School in Queens' Lane. Topics covered by key speakers will range from the continuing relevance of Leonardo da Vinci's anatomical drawings to recent advances in medical imaging.

Key speakers are:

Stephen Barclay (University of Cambridge, UK)
Sarah Channon (The Royal Veterinary College, UK)
Francis Wells (Papworth Hospital, UK)                              
Mick O’Dea (The Royal Hibernian Academy, Ireland)                    
Ruth Richardson (University of Cambridge, UK)        
Augusto Coppi (University of Surrey, UK)  
Emily Evans (University of Cambridge, UK)
Susan Standring (King’s College, UK)
