Anatomy Nights: Matters of the heart

About Anatomy Nights: Matters of the heart

At ASCUS we are delighted to partner with Anatomy@Edinburgh at the University of Edinburgh to bring you Anatomy Nights – Matters of the Heart this Valentines Day.

What are the heart strings? Where is the hole in your heart? How does the blood circulate? See it all before your eyes with a talk from an expert anatomists and cardiovascular science researchers in Summerhall. This is part of a UK wide event where hearts are going to be simultaneously dissected in 5 different locations across the UK! After the dissection there will be the opportunity to get hands-on and have a go at dissecting a heart yourself (or just watch if you prefer) followed by a Q&A session. Our cardiovascular researchers will then guide you through some hands-on microscopy in ASCUS Lab, showing you different images of the heart.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Anatomy Nights: Matters of the heart are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
