Science in Pictures - Presentation


09 December 2016

Students assembled today at UTC Cambridge to receive a gift of fifteen lab coats, in grateful thanks for their contribution to creating the artwork that is now displayed on the hoardings surrounding the new R & D Centre and Corporate Headquarters for AstraZeneca and its global biologics R & D arm, MedImmune.

“Science in Pictures” was a collaborative project between AstraZeneca, MedImmune and nine Cambridge schools, including UTC Cambridge.  At the start of the project the students attended workshops to learn about how potential medicines are identified and developed, and were then asked to create a circular piece of artwork inspired by the science behind new medicines.

“It was a great, fantastic opportunity to host a workshop here at UTC Cambridge and work with the students” explained John Elvin, Associate Director, Scientific External Liaison for MedImmune. “We are committed to taking science to the local community and inspiring the scientists of the future.  This collaborative project revealed the creative side of all those involved, and resulted in an intriguing and beautiful expression of what science can do. The imagination of the students blew us away and we are already making plans to recycle and re-use the hoardings when they eventually come down.”

Danielle Pacey, Deputy Principal at UTC Cambridge thanked John, Rowena Gardner and the whole project team for both the Science in Pictures project and for the lab coats. “Bringing science to life in this way was great fun for the students and the final imagery resulted in some captivating artwork which we are delighted to see proudly displayed here at the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.”
