Dr. Cox has been a member of the Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences department for over 40 years. His focus has been on educational research dealing with methods of making permanent specimens for gross anatomical instruction by use of plastination and freeze drying techniques. Freeze drying as an alternative to plastination is being studied in order to optimize resources by supplementing wet cadaver specimens with easy to use "off the shelf" anatomic specimens. Please note examples of freeze dried and plastinated specimens at
