The University of Michigan Visible Human Project Receives Visitors
from the Ministry of Health, People's Republic of China (MoHPRC)

A delegation from the Ministry of Health of China, hosted by Deborah Walker of the UM School of Nursing, saw a demonstration of the Visible Human Project, on Thursday, April 19, 2001. Walter Meixner gave a presentation of the latest work of the project, showing labeled anatomical structures of the visible human female. The Edgewarp Browser, and Alex Ade's Visible Human Browser, were demonstrated. These applications allow arbitrary views of the VHP female, using data sent from the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center. The guests were excited about the possibilities of the Visible Human for use as a teaching tool.
