An investigation into plastination techniques

I am currently producing a number of prosecutions for the purpose of teaching medical, dental and anatomy students.  Working on both formalin and thiel embalmed cadavers.  I am also aiding the set up of the new plastination lab.  This facility will allow us to preserve specimens for a longer period of time by impregnating them with silicone.  In addition to this I aid in the day to day running of the mortuary by assisting in the thiel embalming process.

I am also currently curating the departments extensive comparative osteology collection

I have a BSc (Hons) in Forensic Anthropology from the University of Dundee and have a keen interest in clinical anatomy, a field in which I hope to pursue research later in my career.
