March 2018 Meeting
The March meeting will take place at 7:30 pm on Thursday, 15th March in the Abbey Church Hall as usual.
Professor Gordon Findlater will talk on ‘Burke and Hare’.
Professor Findlater has taught Anatomy at the University of Edinburgh since 1984. He was awarded a Personal Chair and appointed Professor of Translational Anatomy in 2013 and made an Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 2014. In March 2016 he retired from full time employment and now works for the University on a part-time basis.
His main research interest is the development of innovative ways of teaching anatomy and as such, has been involved with the development of a holographic atlas of anatomy and the use of virtual reality in the teaching of anatomy. He has always been interested in spreading knowledge of anatomy beyond those studying Medicine and so I’m sure he will provide us with a talk on the infamous Burke and Hare from an unusual, and very well informed, viewpoint.
