Monash BDI's Professor Paul McMenamin and Associate Professor Michelle Lazarus were recently featured in an article in The Age, showcasing the brand-spanking new anatomy lab in our Biomedical Learning and Teaching Building. The scientists discussed the evolution of anatomy, and the use of new technology in the field. With the decline of dissection in anatomy courses, 3D-printed model replicas and virtual reality simulators are helping these academics reinvent the study of the anatomy of the human body.
