Behind the Scenes: Research & Collections

How the Museum's collections are used by curators and visiting scientists from around the world

July 16, 2012

Last month, the physical anthropology lab hosted visits by ABC Orthopaedic traveling fellows. These seven fellows are considered to be the among the best young orthopedic surgeons in their respective countries. The American Orthopaedic Association sponsors them on a tour of orthopedic teaching and research centers in the United States. During their first visit, Collections Manager Lyman Jellema, Dr. Anthony Minaci of the Cleveland Clinic Foundation and Museum Registrar Carole Camillo took the fellows on an extensive behind-the-scenes tour of all the collections department areas which contain bone other than the physical anthropology department. On the second visit, Jellema introduced the fellows to the Hamann-Todd Osteological Collection. Dr. Daniel Cooperman and Dr. Raymond Liu from the University Hospitals Department of Orthopaedics gave a demonstration of some of their recent research projects.

Both tours were well-received by the fellows. Museum interns from Ohio Northern University provided assistance in preparing for the tours by pulling the specimens and replacing them when the demonstration was over.

Participating fellows:
Dr. Gordon Beadel (Christchurch and Burwood Hospitals, Christchurch, New Zealand)
Dr. James S. Huntley (Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Yorkhill, Glasgow, Scotland)
Dr. Catherine Fiona Kellett (NHS Tayside, Perth and Dundee, Scotland)
Dr. Michael Richard Reed (Wansbeck General Hospital, Northumberland, England)
Dr. Christian Hugo Snyckers (Steve Biko Academic Hospital of the University of Pretoria, Pretoria, South Africa)
Dr. Duncan Whitwell (Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, Oxford, England)
Dr. Piers Jason Yates (University of Western Australia)
