The 21st century offers us unprecedented opportunities to transform ourselves physically. Changing how our bodies work—our physiology—is more difficult. Anaesthetist Dr Morley will discuss how individuals have sought to enhance themselves in the past. Drawing on his clinical work, and his research at St Thomas’ Hospital, he will also explore our future possibilities as ‘superhumans’.
Dr Andrew Morley is an anaesthetist and History and Archives Project Manager at the Physiological Society.
