Where Science and Art Meet

By AJ Montpetit

Kidney Stone

Working in partnership with the Institute for Genomic Biology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the Center for Individualized Medicine and the Bruce Fouke Lab produced a work of art from the photo of a human kidney stone (featured after the break) that was featured at the Chicago Midway International Airport at "The Art of Science: Images from the Institute for Genomic Biology" exhibit.

This was the third exhibit featured and co-sponsored by the IGB and BodyWork Associates, and was attended by more than 250 community members, students, faculty, and staff enjoying the art that was a production of innovative research and science, and a keen sense of art. The photo, featured below, was taken with an AXIO Zoom.V16 fluorescence stereo zoom microscope, revealing new information on the formation and disposition of kidney stones.

The next exhibit at Midway Airport is schedule for Spring of 2014.
