The Post Mortem Live offers students and the general public an insight into the fascinating world of pathology and post mortem. Lead by award-winning human anatomist Samuel Piri and his clinical team you’ll journey through the human body learning all things anatomy, physiology and pathology. Using VIVIT -the worlds’ only semi-synthetic human cadaver you’ll begin an immersive and interactive post mortem where you’ll examine the body to identify the pinnacle cause of death.
Guided by our expert team you’ll learn how the main organ structures function to keep you alive and what happens when things don’t function normally. You’ll have the chance to undertake technical dissection yourself including a real head specimen, thoracic block and GI tract.
