Here at the Mütter Museum we are proud to be world-renowned for our historically significant collection of medical and pathological specimens. But do you know that our collection is used for pioneering scientific research?
Watch this statement by Museum Director, Dr. Robert Hicks:
This study is just the begining of an exciting new realm of science that could change our understanding of history. What else could archeophonemics uncover?*
*Okay, APRIL FOOLS! We don't have the answer to life, the universe, and everything…yet. But most of the groundbreaking research using our collections is very real!
