Clear and compelling illustrations, animations, and simulations are vital to discovery and communication in science, medicine, and health. There is a growing need for individuals with scientific training and the conceptual and practical skills necessary to design accurate and effective scientific media for a variety of audiences.
The University of Toronto Mississauga is home to the Biomedical Communications (BMC) professional graduate program, the only one of its kind in Canada. BMC graduates are experts in visual communication for scientific and medical research, education, and outreach.
At the HMALC during Science Literacy Week 2017, you can see examples of the illustrations, information graphics, high-end animations, and visualization research produced by BMC students and faculty, in collaboration with researchers and clinicians within the university and beyond. In addition, check out the glass display cases for an exhibition demonstrating actual fossil specimens, on loan from the Reisz lab in the UTM Biology Department, alongside the illustrations and animations used to communicate paleontological research.
Join us all week in the T Room for this exciting display!
