Developmental Anatomy Collections

Below are the collections from the Developmental Anatomy Collections:

Arey-Dapena Pediatric Pathology Collection
A set of lantern slides representing a wide variety of pathologies.

Carnegie Collection of Embryology
This collection's primary focus is on normal development in the first eight weeks. Collateral materials include photographs, plaster and acetate models, reprints and curatorial information.

George Sedgewick Minot Embryological Collection
Embryos from the Harvard School of Medicine. There are drawings and photographs of the embryos, as well as a large number of reprints on embryology and related topics collected by Charles S. Minot.

Hooker-Humphrey Collection
Originally from the University of Chicago, this collection came to the Anatomy Center via the University of Alabama. This collection of human and comparative material is stained to highlight nervous system development. Sizes of specimens range from 50mm to 250mm.

Cornell Human and Comparative Embryology Collection
Embryos from the Cornell School of Veterinary Medicine Embryological Collection. Includes human, rat, mouse and guinea pig.

Davis Orthopedic Development Collection
A large collection of glass slides charting bone growth and development in the human. Slides are grouped by structure starting with the head and moving down through the torso and out the extremities.

Burdi-Patten Michigan Embryology Collection
The Embryology Research Collection at Michigan was established by embryologists George Streeter and G. Carl Huber in the early 1900s with a mission to collect and describe the morphogenesis of human embryos at critical stages in prenatal life. For about twenty years up to 1957, the Collection grew in numbers under the leadership of Professor Bradley M. Patten whose primary interests were in heart and cardiovascular development.
