The Post Mortem Live is a fully immersive dissection based event designed to boost students understanding in anatomy, physiology and pathology. Written by award winning human anatomist and presenter Samuel Piri and his team of doctors the experience showcases a simulated human body dissection using real organ specimens.

Using 'VIVIT -the worlds only semi-synthetic' human cadaver Sam and his team embark on a systematic dissection of the human body, students are presented with the cadaver and throughout the 4 hour interactive experience will work towards applying their learning to determine the pinnacle cause of death.
