The Department welcomes Professor Dame Sue Black DBE OBE FRSE FBA FRAI FRSB ChFA, Baroness Black of Strome and one of the world’s leading forensic scientists, as our Visiting Professor of Forensic Anatomy.

Professor Dame Sue Black

I am delighted to welcome to the Department Baroness Black, the next President of St John's College. Sue is a very distinguished forensic anatomist and her presence will be inspiring for medical students and faculty. - Head of Department Professor David Paterson

Professor Black said: “It is a tremendous honour and privilege to be offered a visiting professorship in Anatomy at DPAG. I look forward to rediscovering my anatomical roots and re-engaging with students in this glorious discipline. The dissecting room is a Rubicon that all anatomists must cross, and when I walked into that cavernous room in Aberdeen University in 1980, I knew in my heart that I had come home. However, I was not prepared for the reality of how much more the teacher must know than the student, until I started to teach the subject in St Thomas’ Medical School in London in 1986. It was here that I was given the opportunity to widen my field of view and began to translate my subject into the fascinating world of forensic investigations. I look forward enormously to sharing my research and experiences with students at Oxford.”
