About Living Autospy with Dr. Suzy Lishman CBE

Dr Lishman will use a living model to explore the process of post-mortem examination and share the tools of her trade.

Join consultant histopathologist Dr Suzy Lishman CBE as she performs a living autopsy to investigate the effects of modern living on the body.

Discover what an autopsy involves and how post-mortem examinations have transformed our understanding of disease and why future investigations may not require a scalpel.

Her award-winning living autopsy has been seen by thousands in real life, and over one million people online. In her day job, Suzy specialises in bowel cancer diagnosis and establishing accurate causes of death.

Out of work Suzy gives regular talks to schools, specialist societies and the public, and has appeared on numerous television programmes discussing historic murders and diseases such as bubonic plague, syphilis and arsenic poisoning.
