About the speaker and lecture

Join Dr Suzy Lishman, President of the Royal College of Pathologists, as she performs a virtual autopsy on a live model to investigate the effects of the plague on the human body. The Great Plague of the 1660s killed an estimated 100,000 people—almost a quarter of London’s population—in 18 months. Discover what an autopsy involves, how post mortem examinations have transformed our understanding of disease and why future investigations may not require a scalpel.

Although there will be no real blood or body parts this event is not recommended for the very squeamish.

Dr Suzy Lishman is a Consultant Histopathologist at Peterborough City Hospital and President of the Royal College of Pathologists. She introduced National Pathology Week in 2008, since when thousands of events for schools and the public have been held in the UK and abroad to dispel some of the misconceptions about pathology and highlight its vital role in healthcare.

This event is part of National Pathology Week.
