Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience



Our research interests include the history of cadaveric dissection and anatomical education. We also work with clinicians on a range of projects including anatomy of the gastrointestinal tract and musculoskeletal disorders. We are currently assembling a virtual museum of historical collections and pathological specimens.

Teaching and Supervisions


We are organisers for the Part IA Functional Architecture of the Body and Part IB Head and Neck Anatomy courses.

We also supervise a number of students for the Part II PDN course.

Postgraduate Courses

We run a number of courses for clinicians and allied health professionals on the practical application of anatomical knowledge in the clinical environment. These include an international course on ultrasound guided regional anaesthesia, endoscopic sinus surgery and clinical anatomy for physiotherapists. Anyone interested in running an external course is encouraged to contact us.
