After several successful grant applications to the Anatomical and the Physiological Society, I have invited prestigious guest speakers and organized the following seminars for staff and MSc Students:
Dr. Will Brackenbury, University of York “Targeting Breast Cancer Metastasis with Anti-epileptic Drugs”, 10th April 2018 (Contributed to the organization with a colleague)
Dr. Debra Patten, Chair of Anatomy, University of New Castle “Ultrasound in the undergraduate medical curriculum in the UK: where are we at and where are we going next? “ 20th March 2018 (Contributed to the organization with a colleague)
Prof. Mtui, Head of Anatomy division, Weill Cornell University, New York, “The first Home Grown Functional Neuroanatomy Resource Innovation for IPads”, 14th March 2018
I have invited Prof Mtui who is an international lead in Neuroanatomy and his textbook in Neuroanatomy had been extensively used by QUB staff and MSc students in the past years. That was following a successful Grant application from the Anatomical Society and the School Scholarship Committee.
The impact of Prof Mtui’s visit:
• A colleague had created a neuroanatomy teaching model with the help of his book • Our MSc students appreciated that QUB had invited a great international professor to contribute in their teaching and share his vast educational experience with them.
