Science as Art

To celebrate Garvan’s 50th Anniversary Science as Art returned to once again stir the creative juices of our scientists. The Science as Art competition, open to all Garvan staff, was first launched 10 years ago. The aim is to actively encourage Garvan scientists to demonstrate their artistic skills through the creation of scientific images as pieces of art.

Dr Nancy Mokbel   “Striation in focus”  Stripes are back!! This image shows the formation of Z-lines in primary myotubes. Z-lines cap the ends of sarcomeres; the contractile unit of the muscle. Z-lines are stained with α-actinin2 (green) and primary myotubes stained with skeletal actin (red).

Stacey Walters   “The ‘Heart’ of Diabetes”  Pancreatic-islet cells produce insulin and are essentially the “heart” of our ability to regulate blood sugar.  Here transplanted islet-clusters take the shape of a heart.

Mana Liao   “Put a Ring On It”  Inosine-5’ monophosphate dehydrogenase (IMPDH) translocates to the lipid bodies by forming a ring around the adipose differentiation-related protein (ADRP) in Chinese hamster ovary cells.

Dr Mark Cowley   “Decoding the Genome of a Deadly Cancer”  The mutational landscape of pancreatic cancer is remarkably heterogeneous. The gene symbol size reflects the mutation frequency in 100 patients, dominated by the KRAS oncogene.
