This is a landmark time in the Department’s history as it has recently moved to its new teaching and research facilities in the Western Gateway Building. The FLAME Laboratory takes its name from the sculpture Flame which was commissioned in recognition of the altruism of those who donate their bodies for medical education and research. FLAME is an acronym for Facility for Learning Anatomy Morphology and Embryology.
This new state of the art facility offers huge potential for further development of teaching and research in the Department. Moreover, changes in medical education and advances in Medical Imaging are changing the landscape of how Anatomy is taught in professional programmes.

The sculpture Flame was commissioned in 1995 by the then Professor of Anatomy, Professor John Fraher, in recognition of the altruism of those who donate their bodies for medical education and research.
It represents the flame of knowledge which leads to the light of understanding. Link here for more details.
