Visit the Eccles Health Sciences Library for a series of exhibits and presentations from 12:00 to 2:00 pm.
Janet Iwasa's exhibit, Animating HIV, will include a video of the animated life cycle of HIV, large-format prints, and sculptural pieces. The animation accurately depicts the infection of a cell by HIV at a molecular scale, and is based on decades of scientific research on HIV, including ongoing work currently being carried out here at the University of Utah. This project was completed in collaboration with numerous HIV researchers, including several members of the Department of Biochemistry, and is funded by the National Institutes of Health.
Janet Iwasa is a faculty member in the Biochemistry Department at the University of Utah. Her broad goal is to create accurate and compelling molecular visualizations that will support research, learning, and scientific communication. Janet was named a 2017 TED Senior Fellow and recognized as one of the 100 Leading Global Thinkers of 2014 by Foreign Policy and one of the 100 Most Creative People of 2012 by Fast Company. After receiving a PhD in cell biology from UCSF, she completed a postdoc with Nobel Laureate Jack Szostak and later worked on biological visualizations as a faculty member at Harvard Medical School.
The Utah Women in Medicine Exhibit presents some of the many female clinicians who have contributed to the legacy of excellence at the University of Utah Health Sciences.
The MD/PhD poster competition is on the upper level of the Eccles Health Sciences library.
