Welcome Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is our great pleasure to welcome participants from all over the world to Dalian – we are honored to hold the 19th International Conference on Plastination here at Dalian Medical University. The conference will be held from the 18th to the 22nd of July, 2018.

This year the conference is designed to provide an innovative and comprehensive overview in sheet plastination and silicone techniques. Specifically we will focus on the areas of clinical anatomy, museology, clinical research and learning. During your time in this conference, you will also be invited to visit The Mystery of Life Museum which is a unique pioneer museum which has thousands of plastinated animals and human bodies, especially the largest plastinated specimen in the world, a plastinated mink whale. In addition, you will also have the opportunity to visit Dalian Hoffen, the largest plastination lab in the world.

 Prior to the conference, we will be holding the 3rd Dalian International Workshop on Plastination demonstrating the plastination techniques, in conjunction with the conference at Dalian Medical University. This preliminary event will offer you an opportunity to interact with the authentic plastination technology and discuss your ideas with technicians and experts.
