Life Sciences Simulation Technology
The human body is a complex machine, integrating systems which have completely different functions, and which can be affected by diseases or drug treatment.
In this session, students will investigate the structure and function of the human body and see its responses to different medications, using the advanced technologies in our simulation suite.
There will also be an opportunity to use our touch-sensitive virtual dissection table, which provides an overview of the basic anatomy of the human body and its major organs and systems, as well as a chance to administer common medications and treatments to our simulated manikin, and see their impact.
This session is suitable for students interested in studying Pharmacy, Optometry, Clinical Sciences and Biomedical Sciences.
Molecules to Man: How medicines are made
We rely on medicines, sometimes daily, but rarely consider how they are made. Around 35% of all prescriptions are for compressed tablets, each carefully formulated to deliver an exact dose to the patient.
In this session we will press our own pills and explore how high technology ensures millions of tablets are made safely every day.
We will also experiment with our recipe to solve different health and technical problems.
Making creams: Hands-on activity
Creams are aqueous based formulations that form a layer on the skin upon application.
Healthy skin is critical for protecting our body from infections and many skin conditions are treated by application of creams topically.
In this activity, you will prepare a moisturising cream. They are called moisturising creams because they deliver water to external layers of skin, hydrating it.
