LIVERPOOL, England, August 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
The world famous 'BODIES REVEALED' Exhibition is coming to Liverpool for the first time on September 1st 2012.

BODIES REVEALED has been brought to Liverpool by New York based S2BN and Premier Exhibitions, Inc. - a major provider of museum quality touring exhibitions throughout the world.
Having been staged in cities such as Amsterdam, Barcelona, Dublin and Mexico City, BODIES REVEALED features 275 whole and partial human body specimens, which have been preserved through a revolutionary technique called polymer preservation. The exhibition has already been experienced by over 7m people worldwide.
Dr. Roy Glover is the Chief Medical Director for BODIES REVEALED. He is Associate Professor Emeritus of Anatomy and Cell Biology and taught Anatomy for over 30 years at the University of Michigan Medical School where he also developed and ran the university's Polymer Preservation Laboratory. Dr Glover will be visiting Liverpool to officially open the Exhibition later this month.
Dr Glover said: "We are delighted BODIES REVEALED is coming to Liverpool. The collection of exhibits will allow visitors of all ages the chance to explore and discover the wonders of the human body in a completely new way. BODIES REVEALED is all about education. It is a demonstration of the complexity, intricacy and sophistication of our organs and how they work. We want BODIES REVEALED to inspire people of all ages to think positively about their own body and promote healthy living choices."
