The Anatomical Society Winter Meeting

Members of our Group worked together to host the Anatomical Society Winter Meeting from 14-16 December 2015 which was held at Magdalene College, Cambridge.

The theme of the meeting was 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 was 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.

Key speakers included Professor Susan Standring, Mr Francis Wells and Mr Mick O'Dea. The conference was attended by over 100 delegates, and topics covered ranged from the continuing relevance of Leonardo da Vinci's anatomical drawings to recent advances in medical imaging.
