The History of Medical Sciences Project
The University of Oxford has a history of excellence in teaching and research in Medical Sciences that stretches back at least eight centuries. Many famous figures, who have been instrumental in developing our understanding of this subject, have studied and worked at the University.
This project aims to preserve and bring to life this rich history through the followings streams:
- Seminars, given by experts in their field, on the history of important discoveries and the individuals behind them
- Digitisation and display of historical microscope slides used for research and teaching
- Collation of images and documents cataloguing the History of Medical Sciences
The Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics
This project is being led by the Department of Physiology Anatomy and Genetics (DPAG). DPAG is the largest pre-clinical department within the Medical Sciences Division of the University of Oxford. It is involved in the teaching of medicine, anatomy and physiology to undergraduates and has a broad research programme offering opportunities for graduate and post-doctoral research.
