M.R. Drennan anatomy museum

The M.R. Drennan museum is a multi-use facility that is in the process of being upgraded. It is used as a teaching venue for a variety of disciplin es and courses on both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. It is hoped that the refurbishment will provide displays that can be used for classwork as well as providing a much needed self-study venue. It is vital for students to be able to see well-dissected specimens in context and to be able to link these structures with the relevant functions. This is particularly relevant to the large numbers of students coming from disadvantaged backgrounds who have not previously had access to biological or anatomical models, and therefore have difficulty grasping three-dimensional concepts.
