Pathology is the science behind the cure, with over 70 per cent of all medical diagnoses involving pathology. To celebrate its fiftieth anniversary, the Royal College of Pathologists asked its members to nominate the objects that they thought had made the largest contribution to modern healthcare to create a book entitled A History of Pathology in 50 Objects. This lecture series will celebrate some of the objects which were deemed most significant.
Join pathologist Dr Suzy Lishman as she explores a selection of the objects, including historical examples from the museum collection. If you've ever wondered how vaccinations were developed, why blood is stored in plastic bags, how autopsy instruments have changed over the years or when treatment for diabetes became available, you'll find all the answers at this event.
