HSL at the Science Museum

16 Dec, 2019

The world’s largest display dedicated to the story of medicine opens at the Science Museum

This month, the world’s largest display dedicated to the story of medicine opens at the Science Museum. Medicines: The Wellcome Galleries is designed to bring every aspect of medicine to life. With more than three thousand medical artefacts displayed, it will also feature artworks and interactive and immersive experiences. We’re delighted that HSL is contributing to the exhibition and flying the flag for pathology and diagnostics.

The Medicines and Bodies area highlights how the quest to understand our bodies has transformed medicine. HSL and the Science Museum have produced a video which will be shown within a section exploring how the study of the chemical makeup of blood and urine determines diagnoses.

The video follows the journey of a sample, from blood-taking to analysis to results, and was filmed in both the Halo and Wimpole Street laboratories. You can see a short version of the film here:

HSL is a partnership between The Doctors Laboratory, Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust (the Royal Free London) and University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH)
