The Next Generation in Biomedical Visualization

May 5, 2023 – May 14, 2023

Opening Reception: Friday, May 5, 2023 10:00am – 12:00pm Free

Biomedical Visualization is where art, life science, and medicine meet technology for visual communication. This exhibition highlights the next generation of artists from the Biomedical Visualization Graduate Program at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). Their work appeals to various audiences, empowering and educating viewers on the intersection of medicine, life science, communication technology, visual learning, education science, and biocommunications research. Mediums vary from illustrations, animations, and interactive programs, such as virtual reality or augmented reality. The diversity in media speaks to those trained in Biomedical Visualization, for they harness the ability to dissect the evolving discoveries in both science and healthcare, striving to communicate these advancements through visual pieces. 

About the Biomedical Visualization Graduate Program at UIC: Founded in 1921 by Professor Thomas Smith Jones, the Biomedical Visualization program at the University of Illinois at Chicago is the second oldest accredited school of its kind and one of only five accredited graduate programs in North America providing professional training for careers in the visual communication of life science, medicine, and healthcare. With a renowned faculty and a curriculum that keeps pace with advances in science and technology, UIC’s Biomedical Visualization program attracts graduate students from various disciplines, including medicine, life science, art, sculpture, digital media, and computer science.
