Institute of Anatomy


Past Science Trail: Lively anatomy

The texidermist Sebastian Pilz gave us a tour through the anatomical collection.

Afterwards the postdocs at the Institute of Anatomy gave us insight into their research:

They let us take a look through their multi-photon microscope which allowed us to view fascinating images of living tissue. We learned how genetically altered organisms help us to understand the mechanisms of sick bodies and, in the end, contribute to the healing of humans. And experienced how experiments in zero gravity are conducted in order to understand to what extent and why the Earth's gravity is necessary for the functioning of human cells.
