Transplant & Life Exhibition

A major new public exhibition providing a unique insight in patient, professional and public experiences of organ transplantation has opened this week. Members of the Division of Surgery & Interventional Science (Barry Fuller and Ossie Fernando - retired Hon senior lecturer) have been heavily involved with the steering  committee, and  individuals from Royal Free / UCL academic and clinical organ transplant services are very well represented in the exhibition.  The aim has been to use innovative sound and vision art forms to bring modern transplantation into the museum space normally occupied by historical  exhibits, in the spectacular location  provided by the Hunterian museum. The exhibition is free to the public, has a free access on-line web platform to view some of the stories, and will run until May 2017, with occasional day events planned throughout that period. For anyone interested in organ transplantation, public engagement, history of surgery, modern interventional sciences,  or just looking for an interesting place to visit in nearby Holborn, it is well worth dropping by.      More...
