Jan Langman and Medical Embryology

Langman memorial plaque in the McGill Strathcona Anatomy and Dentistry Building.

Jan Langman was a Professor in the Department of Anatomy at McGill from 1957 to 1964. His textbook Medical Embryology (Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins) was first published in 1963 and has become the standard in the field. It has been translated into several languages and is now in its 12th edition (authored by Thomas W. Sadler, 2011). The illustrations (by Jill Leland) used to explain the descriptions of normal embryology in a 2014 exhibit mounted in the Strathcona building were taken from the second edition.
