Lunchtime lecture

Do join us at Special Collections tomorrow for our fourth lunchtime lecture of 2014-2015: "Bodies of knowledge : the early days of anatomy in Galway" in the company of Alex Black, Anatomy, School of Medicine.

This talk will cover the early days of anatomy in the university, and will illustrate the importance of anatomy to society, society to anatomy, and medical imaging to medicine.

A selection of anatomy material from the Old Library Collection, as used by the very first anatomy students on campus, will be on display during the talk.

All are welcome to the G011 Seminar Room in the Hardiman Building on Feb. 4th at 1pm.
