Lecturer in Anatomy

Mr Luke Reid graduated with an MSc in Human Anatomy from the University of Edinburgh, gaining in-depth knowledge of anatomical science and its role within a developing medical curriculum. His passion for human anatomy stems from his previous roles working alongside sports teams and rehabilitation centres, using his understanding of clinical biomechanics, sports medicine and physical rehabilitation, to treat patients with various degrees of neuro-musculoskeletal dysfunction. Mr Reid has conducted research in musculoskeletal tissue engineering, studying the impact of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound on tendon fibroblast cells in vitro, and also into neurophysiological effects of spinal manual therapy.
Mr Reid joins CAHID from the Caribbean island of Dominica, where he spent 15 months employed as an anatomist educating graduate medical students in gross anatomy, histology and embryology.

Mr Reid is responsible for anatomy lectures in the medical (MBChB; years 1-3) and dental (BDS; year 1) programmes.  He uses his extensive experience of full body dissection to teach clinical human anatomy during the delivery workshops and dissection lab sessions. He is the anatomical academic lead for the Reproductive and Gastrointestinal systems on the MBChB programme.
Mr Reid is endeavouring to expand on and improve radiographic anatomy e-learning resources within the anatomical curriculum, in the aim of developing medical image analysis and interpretation in students.
