Infection - Dinner - Dissection

?The post-antibiotic era is dawning'

The nationally acclaimed dinner and dissection experience attracted headlines around the world and after three amazing sell-out tours, we're back for 2020 with Contagion.

Anatomy Lab LIVE 2020 ?contagion' is going to be really exciting. The 2020 event will delve into how infections affect the organs and tissues of the human body.

We've only had antibiotics for just over 80 years and we're already facing the stark reality of their overuse. As strains of bacteria evolve with resistance, how will we treat the infections of the future? We'll be asking are the Hollywood style apocalypses possible? How are infections transmitted and what do they do to the body?

We invite you to suit up and step into a fully working decontamination tent where you'll work with real specimens to learn more about infectious diseases, their effect on the body and how science is preparing for when things inevitably go wrong.

'We're really excited to release the contagion tour in 2020. This will be a perfect blend of infotainment that will promise an unforgettable night like never before. We urge you to get your tickets as soon as possible as the last three tours have sold out within a few hours!' -  Samuel Piri

The event delivers in-depth content aimed at those studying anatomy, physiology or pathology at undergraduate level and for those who are already practising healthcare professionals.
