Students return home from body work at Plastinarium in Germany

UW-Green Bay anatomy and physiology students traveled 4,500 miles this summer to the Plastinarium in Guben, Germany for a chance to work with a preservation technique called plastination. (We featured a story on last year’s trip in the May issue of the Inside 360 print magazine.) The students and tour leaders, Human Biology Associate Prof. Amanda Nelson and Associate Dean Donna Ritch, worked side-by-side with German anatomist Dr. Gunther von Hagens, who developed the process for dissection and anatomical study of preserved corpses.
