The Pathology Museum was funded and developed by Professor David Weedon, one of Queensland’s most well-respected Pathologists and benefactor to the Faculty of Health Sciences and Medicine.
Student & community benefit from the facility
The Pathology Museum features an extensive collection of diseased specimens (organs and tissue) complete with histories from all regions of the human body.
The facility is a resource available to staff and students and is regularly utilised for scheduled classes including practical examinations and personal study. Specimens retained in our museum are used extensively in the teaching of our health professional programs, including Medicine and Biomedical Science. A number of specimens, such as those displaying smoking related diseases or melanoma, are also used for presentations to high school students and the wider community
The Museum is meticulously maintained by Faculty staff and has updated over the years to reflect the changing patterns of disease in our society.
