December 11, 2019

BioArtograhy, based at a2ru host institution the University of Michigan, uses lab-created imagery to create a variety of artistic products which raise funds for graduate education.

From the BioArtography site:

“In the course of research, scientists use special stains to add color to the otherwise transparent tissues. Microscopes then allow detailed observation. The tiny biological structures revealed in these images are beautiful; we share them with you here as a fascinating combination of art and science that we call BioArtography. The University of Michigan unites scientists from many fields who work together to study organism development, function and disease. The goal of these studies is to design new and effective ways to treat disease and provide better understanding of ourselves as well as the world that surrounds us. Proceeds from the sale of this work help support the training of our next generation of researchers.”
