An interdiciplenary collaboration of scientists from the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Stem Cell Biology and animators in Denmark is aiming to facilitate a dialogue between the two diciplines, and ultimately disseminate stem cell research to different segments of the society.
The primary objectives are:
- To train scientists to pitch scientific stories to non-scientists, and in particular to visual story-tellers.
- To introduce visual story-tellers to stem cell research and to how science is conducted.
- To establish a common language between these professionals.
In May 2019, a few scientists from DanStem went to a match-making event in Viborg, and in August the painter and animator Cosimo Miorelli visited DanStem to meet with scientists and platform specialists.
More specilized animations are currently in the pipeline.
