Celebrating its 20th year, The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute’s annual Art of Science exhibition presents stunning images and videos captured by Australian medical researchers tackling some of the biggest challenges facing global health.
Taking place during National Science Week from 10 to 19 August at Melbourne’s Federation Square, Art of Science is a journey of biomedical exploration and discovery traversing the vast and complex research areas of cancer, infectious diseases and immune disorders.
See how blood vessels grow from a piece of bone grown in the laboratory. Watch breast cancer cells ‘caught on camera’ as they attempt escape to run riot in other parts of the body. And be unsettled by a writhing parasite ‘playground’ captured under the microscope with an iPhone.
This year, our esteemed panel of judges is from Museums Victoria and includes CEO Lynley Marshall; Senior Curator for Human Biology and Medicine Johanna Simkin; and Collections Curator for Engineering Matilda Vaughan.
The public also get to have their say. Visitors to the exhibition are invited to vote for their favourite image in the ever popular People’s Choice Awards for the chance to win a framed print of their choice.
