Art of Science exhibition visitor
The popular annual Art of Science exhibition appeals to
all age groups.

Art of Science is an annual exhibition of images and videos captured by Institute researchers tackling some of the biggest health challenges of our time including cancer, infectious diseases and ageing.

The pop-up experience is like a ‘backstage pass’ into the laboratory. See intestinal cells devouring themselves; neurons forming vital connections for the brain to function; and the remarkable change in architecture of human breast tissue after menopause.

Institute volunteers will be at the exhibition daily to answer questions and share their stories of exploration and discovery. These talented and dedicated people are the reason the Institute is a top-ranked Australian medical research institute (Nature Index, 2019).

Healthy competition

The exhibition features 20 finalists from the Institute’s annual Art of Science competition. Visitors can vote for their favourite entry in the People’s Choice Awards and go in the running to win a framed print of the work they love best.
