Event Details

The Museum of Medicine and Health invites you to the first in a series of events exploring the history of medicine and health through objects. The University holds an extensive collection of historical artefacts covering many periods and specialisms and each of our events will feature a historian or practitioner talking about the significance of an object.

For our first event, Dr. Peter Mohr, ex-curator of the Museum and retired consultant neurologist at Salford Royal Hospital introduces the history of the Museum and talks about three objects – an instrument used to remove brain tissue, a coitus training aid and the early penicillin syringe developed for use on battlefields that was recently featured in Unilife.

The event is being hosted by the Faculty of Human and Medical Sciences, the Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine and the University Heritage Programme.
