Cells of Knowledge: Collaborative effort of scientists and animators

Posted by , on 5 March 2020

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:

  1. To train scientists to pitch scientific stories to non-scientists, and in particular to visual story-tellers.
  2. To introduce visual story-tellers to stem cell research and to how science is conducted.
  3. 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.

Following these interactions, Cosimo conducted the animation ‘Cells of Knowledge; a short introduction to stem cells research and to the techniques used in research.

More specilized animations are currently in the pipeline.
