“The greatest scientists are always artists as well.” - Albert Einstein 


Art of Science is an annual competition and exhibition of still and moving images captured by WEHI scientists in the course of their research into cancer, infection and immunity and healthy development and ageing.  

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Art of Science, which was founded in 1997 by former WEHI director Professor Suzanne Cory. The competition is open to all WEHI staff and students. 

The online exhibition of this year's 20 finalists goes live here on Friday 21 October.
