About Us

The plastination library was started in 2016 by Dr. Maureen Stabio originally as a collection of brains for Brain Awareness Week, and it has expanded to include organs of all systems - healthy, diseased, and anomalous cases. Specimens are shared through a lending library system that has served over 9,000 students, from K-retired, since the start of the collection. This library was inspired by anatomical libraries at the Harvard Warren Anatomical Museum, College of Physicians of Philadelphia Historical Medical Library, and University of Toledo School of Medicine Interactive Museum of Anatomy and Pathology. The library is procured by the staff below with abundant support from enthusiastic master's students from the Modern Human Anatomy Program.
