WEHI’s 2023 Art of Science online gallery offers you the chance to be immersed in the wonder of scientific research and discover the powerful story behind each stunning image.
These images reveal a hidden inner world of intricate biological details, such as a growing nerve cell, blood vessels in the lung or even milk-producing cells in the breast. This is the beauty of science and life-changing medical research.
The 16 still and moving images are the finalists from WEHI’s 2023 Art of Science competition, with winners judged by The Age and Sydney Morning Herald’s national science reporter Liam Mannix.
The launch of this year’s online gallery coincides with National Science Week (12-20 August) and shines a spotlight on WEHI’s research, from understanding the drivers of cancer and malaria to unravelling the mysteries of cell death.
This year’s Art of Science will be WEHI director Professor Doug Hilton AO’s last under his leadership, with Prof Hilton appointed the next Chief Executive of CSIRO commencing on 29 September.
