LONDON (Aug. 4, 2022) – In a partnership to help prevent “brain drain” and assist Ukraine’s higher education system, Primal Pictures is now providing its market-leading, 3D digital human anatomy platform Anatomy.tv to Sumy State University.
The access was organized by the University of Liverpool and the UK-Ukraine University Twinning program, which aims to identify ways institutions can work together during the ongoing conflict and through reconstruction.
“We’re happy to help play a part supporting education in Ukraine during this challenging and traumatic situation,” says Primal Product Director Lorna Wilson. “We hope our anatomy resources will contribute to Sumy State University’s resilience and aid students who are determined to continue their studies.”
Powering Anatomy.tv, Primal Pictures is the only complete and medically accurate digital human 3D model based on real body scans and imaging data. For more than 30 years, Primal’s pioneering and award-winning software has been used by millions of educators, students, and practitioners in over 1,500 institutions across more than 150 countries.
“Anatomy.tv is an amazing resource that will complement the support offered by the University of Liverpool and help sustain anatomy teaching during these difficult times,” says Professor Nathan Jeffery, Director of the University of Liverpool’s Human Anatomy Resource Centre.
In addition to this arrangement, there are dozens more twinning partnerships between UK and Ukrainian institutions. Benefits include sharing academic resources, mutually recognizing credits, summer school placements in the UK, access to staff development courses, support for cloud-based IT and collaboration on journals and conferences.
