Help Preserve a Piece of UTMB History

Alumni, faculty, staff and the community are invited to participate in the Adopt-A-Specimen Initiative to help UTMB preserve a unique collection by adopting a specimen to ensure its enduring value.

More than 1,900 specimens were crucial tools for medical training generations ago.  These unique wet, dry and wax specimens date back to the late nineteenth century and are in danger of deterioration if not carefully maintained.

This initiative is an opportunity to support the care of these collections to include environmental monitoring, conservation, and purchase of preservation supplies.  These specimens, along with the vast medical memorabilia collections, will form the nucleus of the future medical museum at Old Red.

An engraved plaque commemorating the donor's adoption will be attached to each specimen container.
