Scientific partners

To ensure the highest scientific quality of the exhibition, HUMAN BODIES has been advised by the following world-leading institutions in the technique of plastination:

SCIENTIFIC DIRECTOR

Dr Rafael Latorre

Professor of Veterinary Anatomy and Embryology
University of Murcia

“On this occasion, we have used plastination to provide a simple and approachable representation to help people learn about our anatomy. It allows the public to see, for example, the workings of the heart, the circulation of blood throughout the body, and what happens to our lungs if we don’t look after them. It offers a fascinating journey into the inside of the human body.”

MEDICAL DIRECTOR

Dr Virginio García Martínez

Professor of Human Anatomy and Embryology
University of Extremadura

“An exhibition like Human Bodies, featuring samples of human organs, plastinated bodies, comparisons of organs with the animals at the lower end of the phylogenetic scale and audiovisual demonstrations of surgical procedures, all supported by an audio guide, makes for a compelling experience. Human Bodies plunges visitors into fascinating meditations and deep reflections on our organism, how it works and, above all, the best way to stay healthy.”
