Since before the days of Leonardo, artists and scientists have explored the complexity of the life sciences together, portraying human anatomy in health and disease. Philadelphia, the birthplace of both art and medicine in America, has played an important role in this history. Today, advances in technology are revolutionizing the interdisciplinary profession of artistic life scientists, now known as medical illustrators. Discover how this visual journey reflects our cultural history and see the evolution from classical illustration to today’s medical illustration, which includes the animation of dynamic molecular and cellular processes, simulation, virtual and augmented reality, gaming, and mobile media.

Speakers: Marc Dryer Hons BA, MSc, MScBMC, University of Toronto; Nathaniel Klein, Innovative Director iSO-Form; Nina Long, the Wistar Institute; Christine Young, President Elect, Association of Medical Illustrators.
