Our new Thiel cadaver facility provides Thiel soft-fix embalmed human cadavers for our undergraduate, postgraduate and CPD anatomy teaching, for advanced training in-house or at the Cuschieri Skills Centre, for various research collaborations, and for product evaluations with external companies.
To preserve specimens (animal or human) for longer-term use we can plastinate them, or create corrosion casts to visualise structures.
We have a number of unique skeletal collections that play an important role in our teaching, our research, and our forensic case work. CT scans, laser scans, and 3D reconstructions are available of some of the specimens.
A colony of Dermestid beetles is available to clean animal bones to add to our collections, but also to contribute to forensic case work as a safe method to clean bones for further inspection.
Our experienced staff regularly contributes to high profile forensic cases and can offer expertise in human identification, age assessment of the living, forensic anthropology, facial reconstruction and forensic archaeology.
