STEM CELL ORCHESTRA: Building a Cardiac Patch
Media – Adobe Photoshop, ZBrush, Cinema 4D
Display – High Definition Animation for Educational Website
Client – Grayson Lab for Craniofacial and Orthopaedic Tissue Engineering, JHU SOM
Developed as part of my Master’s thesis at Johns Hopkins University. The client needed a visualization of the challenges associated with the spatio-temporal control of diverse cell culture in engineering cardiac tissue. After determining a 3D animation was the best platform, I used confocal microscopy datasets to visualize the cell types and build 3D models. Contraction data was used to map cardiomyocyte contraction. The animation was hosted on the web and interactivty added to the timeline to increase engagement with viewers.
