Humanity’s fascination with death and the supernatural has influenced science for centuries. The desire to overcome death and understand the strange and unusual of the human condition has inspired many scientists throughout history, particularly within the fields of anatomy and medicine.
At this Science on Tap, Leslie New, PhD, assistant professor of statistics at WSU Vancouver, will take us on a tour of some of the weirdest specimens from museum collections in the western world and describe how scientists through the centuries have tried to understand death and the afterlife.
Not for the squeamish, join us for a walk through the more macabre corners of science as we celebrate Leonardo da Vinci’s 567th birthday!
