I Heart Anatomy: A Lifelong Craving For A Curious Science

Firstly, thank you for stopping by. I guess the best introduction is an introduction

I was very lucky to begin my degree in Anatomical Sciences in 2003 at the University of Dundee; Scotland’s only remaining university to use whole class full human cadavers for dissection. Throughout my degree the legendary Dr David L. Dawson, (who never wore gloves for dissection) led the class through the amazing anatomy-lab journey of the human body, from breaking the ice with bum-cheeks on the first day to brains, eyeballs and everything else. Yes. Everything.

Upon graduating, I worked for the university as a post-graduate demonstrator for a year. I then moved to Edinburgh, the home of Burke and Hare, in hope of wider opportunities and a future in the anatomy lab. With the recession deepening as time went on, this didn’t turn out to be the case. After working in business development and administration, I am now happily settled in the events industry, based in Leith, Edinburgh. However, not a day goes by when I don’t miss dearly the wonder that anatomy and the honour that dissection brought to the ‘working week’.

I felt the time had come to record my thoughts, favourite findings and curiosities which some of you may have already come across through The Irregular Anatomist’s Twitter and Facebook page, established earlier this month.

Join me here to delve into the wonderful world of anatomy, cadavers, body snatching and the history of medicine as well as an insight into the trends, fashion and designs that continue to draw inspiration from this fascinating and curious science.
