Teaching Fellow in Anatomy, Teacher of human clinical anatomy

Dr Ian Jenkins is Teaching Fellow of Anatomy in Medicine at the University of Southampton.

Anatomy, has historically been termed "the Queen of the medical sciences". Anatomical knowledge underpins all of medicine and surgery because all physical manifestations of disease states have an anatomical component, and, either at the topographical and or histological (microanatomical) level have their origin in altered anatomical structure.

An anatomist with a lifelong interest in the subject since 1987, with particular expertise in human clinical anatomy, vertebrate anatomy, evolutionary anatomy and biomechanics and. Trained dental surgeon and also vertebrate zoologist (anatomy).

Previous research background was in the functional anatomy and biomechanics of the head and jaws. Strong focus in recent years has been on human clinical anatomy and the functional relationship between observed clinical symptoms and their underlying anatomical causes. Ten years' experience of clinical work in the NHS outside dental surgical training.

Ian ceased active primary research 17 years ago and since then have focussed on delivering high-quality anatomical teaching. Within the field of anatomy, this has been exceptionally broad: in the Universities of Cambridge, Bristol, UCL and most recently Reading, this teaching has encompassed mainly human and clinical anatomy, but also veterinary anatomy and to a great extent vertebrate anatomy. More recent interests have focussed on anatomical pathology (the anatomy of gross pathology).

Research interests

Research interests

Past research activities focussed on the anatomy and comparative biomechanics of the jaws of reptiles and mammals.

Approaches utilised 3-D mathematical modelling, a variety of mechanical engineering principles, standard dissections and microdissections.

Also the analysis of exceptionally preserved fossil crania, suture mechanics, bone biology and classical functional anatomical methods.
