Lehrstuhl für makroskopische und klinische Anatomie

Welcome to the Division of Macroscopic and Clinical Anatomy at the Medical University of Graz!

The discipline of anatomy is a basic medical science that is concerned with the structure and function of the human body.

We see it as our obligation to promote education and research equally. Classical methods of anatomical preparation and model construction as well as modern imaging and digital technologies are all employed. The main research areas in our division are experimental biomechanics, clinical and translational anatomy and educational research.

Central to anatomy is the gift of body donation. Our donors enter into an agreement with the Medical University of Graz. The anatomical knowledge obtained from these donations provide the medical doctors of the future the required expertise to guarantee future-oriented and safe work on patients. Through continuous training and research with recognized experts, new innovative standards can be set.

Niels Hammer

"Anatomy is a living and translational discipline that integrates research and education. It is made possible by combining the most modern technologies with those that have been handed down and primarily by closely cooperating with our clinical colleagues."
