Skeleton and anatomical models in the life sciences resource centre
The Life Sciences Resource Centre (LSRC) is an outstanding teaching and learning facility for healthcare professionals. We have an extensive range of modern resources designed to best support your study, whether attending taught sessions or during self-directed learning, the LSRC will empower you to succeed to your full potential. 
You will experience world class interdisciplinary teaching by a highly dedicated and experienced staff who will prepare and support you in your journey to become a health care professional. Through our creative approach to teaching, you will engage with our anatomage tables, use ultrasound simulators, interact with our simulated patients, and use molecular and anatomical models from day one.

The LSRC department is my favourite place to learn and revise, it's a calm environment to study either with friends or by yourself. It has all the resources I could possibly need - there is clinical skills equipment, comprehensive anatomy models, great study rooms and super lovely staff!
