'Pharmacopoeia' exhibition

This is a past event

An exhibition of printed and manuscript material from our Special Collections exploring a history of health

In celebration of the British Science Festival 2012, the Special Collections Centre at the University Library will host Pharmacopeia - an exhibition featuring rare and fascinating printed and manuscript material that demonstrates some of the earliest recorded interpretations of the natural sciences - a history of health.

Illustrated and annotated, the documents explore the study of the medicinal qualities of plants in the treatment of disease, making links with contemporary scientific research and practice at the University of Aberdeen including cutting edge examples from the Marine Biodiscovery Centre as well the Kosterlitz Centre for Therapeutics.

During the British Science Festival week (4-9 Sep) the Gallery will be open from 10:00-19:00, Mon-Thu, 10:00-17:00, Fri-Sat , and 12:00-16:00 on Sun.
