Major CCS events

2014 Postgraduate symposium

20 Nov Guest speaker: Medical animator Chris Hammang

Christopher Hammang, a biomedical animator at the Garvin Institute is visiting Central Clinical School and will be presenting: Animating the Gut Microbiome
Venue: Lecture Theatre, Level 5, Alfred Centre
Time: 2.30-3.30pm
In this talk, Christopher Hammang will present two of his biomedical animation projects; "The Hungry Microbiome" and “Alzheimer’s Enigma” which he created as part of a larger research communication initiative, called VIZBIplus. The animations created by Christopher explore immense scientific detail, but remove abstract scientific language and jargon in order to keep the content interesting and meaningful to the largest possible audience. The techniques and principles which Christopher uses in his work will be explored, demonstrating how scientists have more tools at their fingertips than ever before to communicate their work to wider audiences.
