Historical studies about the collections of the Museum of Anatomy and Embryology

The Museum of Anatomy and Embryology, founded in 1838 constitutes a significant part of our laboratory. The Museum contains anatomical and embryological specimens as well as very precious and rare models in wax and plaster. Anthropological reproductions and dental specimens are also abundant. Using archive documents, we try to reconstitute the complex history of our collections.
