Exciting Collaboration between Amsterdam UMC and Primal Pictures Enhances Medical Education

January 23, 2024

There is a significant milestone in medical education through a newly forged licensing agreement between Amsterdam UMC and Primal Pictures. This collaboration marks a pivotal step in the enhancement of anatomical education, thanks to the innovative work of Dr. Bernadette de Bakker, embryologist at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Primal Pictures, a leading developer of educational apps for anatomy studies, will now incorporate Dr. De Bakker’s groundbreaking 3D embryology models into their interactive applications. These models, first published in Science in 2016, have revolutionized our understanding of embryological development. The integration of these models into an interactive 3D app specifically designed for embryology education will provide biomedical students with an unparalleled learning experience. This tool promises to transform the way embryological anatomy is taught and understood, making complex concepts more accessible and engaging for the students.

The IXA Amsterdam UMC team and Legal Support (LRS) was closely involved in bringing this project to fruition. The partnership with Primal Pictures is a shining example of how Amsterdam UMC continues to lead the way in innovative medical education.
