Hidden in the heart of UNSW is the Museum of Human Disease, a fascinating site filled with over 3000 unique specimens for students study and for the public to check out. Recently named one of the city’s treasures by the Sydney Morning Herald, the museum is part of the school of medical sciences and provides information to the public about health, disease, human anatomy and biology. Visitors will see and learn about various infectious, genetic and lifestyle-related diseases. The Director for the Museum, Derek Williamson, takes us behind the scenes to learn more about how the museum is now educating people globally.
