medical illustration of PNA molecules, which mimic DNA, are loaded onto nanodiscs to be taken up by tumor cells. This increases delivery, which has long been a problem in delivering therapeutic nucleic acids. Research like this will hopefully make great strides into improving cancer care for our oncology patients.
medical animation of Designed to educate new employees to a biotechnology company, this video was used for explaining DNA sequencing, designed to be shown while an instructor narrated the film.
medical illustration of Viruses are often used to introduce DNA into an organism, with the goal of altering protein expression. This image was submitted as cover art.
medical animation of Acinar cells are harvested from patients with pancreatic cancer, and grown in vitro
medical illustration of Red blood cells carry oxygen throughout the body, and are anuclear. This image was created for cover art submission.
medical illustration of CRISPR is a powerful tool in gene editing. This particular enzyme is activated in water, and we chose to use an underwater scene of the CRISPR carving out the Venus de Milo.
medical animation of Early diagnosis of cancer, as well as monitoring for potential relapse, is vital to increasing survival in cancer patients. New technology allows us to detect tumor cells that are circulating in the blood stream.
medical illustration of Fruit flies use a number of pharyngeal neurons to detect bitter, acid, or high salt compounds. This combinatorial coding of neurons allows for aversive behavior.


Graduating from the University of Florida in 2017 with a PhD in medical science, I decided to merge my education in cancer biology and therapeutics with my love of art. Hughes Scientific Illustration was born. Please contact me with any questions you may have. I look forward to our next project together.
