Description

“Specimen Showoff”  with Dr Steve Cross, Wellcome Trust Public Engagement Fellow

The nationally renowned Steve Cross, creator of Science Showoff (which now includes Showoffs for
History, Animals, Books, Geeks and sustainability) will compere this evening of entertainment and
engagement with pathology specimens: the one-off "Specimen Showoff"!


Join pathology collection curators and audience members/event attendees as they perform entertaining 9 minute sets about their favourite specimens, placing them in context and explaining why they chose them.

Examples sets include:
Sarah Cox (ex QMUL) – “I am Murdered!” The Skull of John Bellingham

Carla Valentine (QMUL) – “It’s What’s Inside that Counts” – The ‘foreign objects’ cabinet.

Steve Moore (QMUL) - "Hunter VS Potts: The Curious Story of our Oldest Specimen, the Hernia"

The evening will be peppered by Steve’s fantastic comedy compering and we're be looking for volunteers from across QMUL and the London medical and pathology museum sectors. Do you have a specimen from QMUL’s pathology collection you’d like to show off?
