Science Group 2 Learn about Transplants

We met on Friday 17th September and were privileged to learn about organ transplants and the donor system from guest Janet Tilford.
Janet presented a personal and informative talk about her own liver transplant. She emphasised how lucky she was to receive a donated liver after she suddenly contracted a very rare condition.

After the break we had an opportunity to examine the liver, lungs, heart, oesophagus and trachea from a pig. The organs of a pig are very similar to ours and according to Dr Hannibal Lecter the liver is best accompanied by a glass of Chianti!
Check out the amazing job that your liver does for all of us.
