BioSkills Laboratory


The Biomedical Sciences Research and Education Laboratory (BSREL), or “BioSkills Laboratory”, is a state-of-the-art facility in the Center for Anatomical Sciences which promotes anatomy education, biomedical research, and community outreach at the UNT Health Science Center.


Education

Clinicians, residents, and medical students in the north Texas area use the facility for clinical training/workshops to learn both basic and complex surgical techniques.

With the ability to accommodate up to 50 individuals at 6 separate workstations, the BioSkills Laboratory provides an ideal setting for guided training in clinical procedures ranging from introductory suture clinics for students to intricate surgical procedures for practicing physicians.

Research

CAS faculty and graduate students in the Structural Anatomy PhD Program at UNTHSC use the BioSkills Laboratory to conduct innovative anatomy-based research.

The well-equipped Bioskills Laboratory supports a wide spectrum of research in the anatomical sciences, including investigations of human variation, biomechanics, neuroscience, applied anatomy (development of clinical protocols and devices), and anatomy-focused educational pedagogy.

Outreach

The BioSkills Laboratory also supports numerous anatomy outreach programs supported by the Center for Anatomical Sciences at UNTHSC.  These outreach programs include workshops, science camps, field trips, and video conferences for teachers and students at more than 30 local K-12 schools in the Dallas-Fort Worth Area.
