The VizbiPlus project aims to improve how life science is communicated by creating exemplary scientifically-accurate animations designed to inspire and educate the public about cutting-edge biomedical research. Three more animations are in production.
The Hungry Microbiome. How healthy diet and gut bacteria help prevent cancer. Created by Christopher Hammang (CSIRO, Sydney).
Alzheimer's Enigma. Reveals the role of protein breakdown in Alzheimer’s disease. Created by Christopher Hammang (CSIRO, Sydney).
Cancer Is Not One Disease. How molecular mistakes can now be detected in individual cancers. Created by Kate Patterson (Garvan Institute of Medical Research, Sydney).
Tagging DNA: Mislabelling The Cancer Genome. How methylation can affect gene expression without changing the genetic code. Created by Kate Patterson (Garvan Institute of Medical Research, Sydney).
Inflammation & Type 2 Diabetes. How obesity can lead to adult-onset diabetes. Created by Maja Divjak (Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, Melbourne).
Insulin Receptor and Type 2 Diabetes. Describes the role of the insulin receptor in type 2 diabetes. Created by Maja Divjak (Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, Melbourne).
