Visual Science

medical illustration of Visual Science has created a scientifically accurate 3D model of the Zika virus. The model reflects scientists' current understanding of the virus's architecture. It includes 360 distinct surface protein structures, the lipid envelope, and the likely structure of genetic material in complex with capsid proteins.
medical animation of This scientifically accurate CRISPR systems animation was created by Visual Science biologists and scientific visualization experts with support from the Skoltech Biotechnology faculty. The animation is based on molecular modelling and dynamics, which allowed to produce accurate models of natural and engineered CRISPR complexes, as well as to visualize the interiors of the bacterial cell and human cell nucleus.
medical animation of This educational animation was created by Visual Science for Johan Elf laboratory at the University of Uppsala. The lab studies biophysical foundations of key molecular processes in bacterial cells, such as transcriptional regulation, protein biosynthesis and cell division. The animation shows two different ways of how proteins search for target sites on the DNA genomic sequence. One variant can be used by transcription factors, and the other, for example, by CRISPR complexes.
medical illustration of This is scientifically accurate 3D model of the Botulinum toxin A. Preparations of type A botulinum toxin known as “Botox” or “Dysport” have been used for the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles as it causes a temporary relaxation of facial muscles.
medical animation of It is sometimes expedient to combine 2D and 3D techniques to visualize complex biological processes. 3D modeling and animation can create detailed, scientifically accurate anatomical and molecular models, while schemes animated in 2D are more clear when explaining biochemical processes. Visual Science’s video about anti-hypoxia therapy is an example of an effective combination of 2D and 3D in one project.
medical animation of Animation demonstrates the mechanism of action of Curaxin molecules. Curaxins are candidate anticancer treatments developed by Cleveland Biolabs in collaboration with the Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI). In 2016 RCPI invited Visual Science to create an animation on Curaxin technology as a part of a larger film about RPCI accomplishments in cancer research field.
medical animation of Visual Science and the RAS Institute of Ethnology and Anthropology, with support from the All-Russian Science Festival “Nauka 0+”, have created the first scientifically accurate 3D Virtual Reality animation of the Sungir people – Homo sapiens who lived 30,000 years ago and are believed to be ancestors of today’s Northern and Eastern Europeans. The visualization is based on skeletal remains of two siblings aged 10 and 13 years old from the Sungir site in Central Russia.
medical animation of Visual Science, in collaboration with virologists from the National Center for Biotechnology in Madrid, has produced the first 3D model of the entire A/H1N1 virus, better known as the common flu. The model reflects the current state of scientific knowledge about the virus based on the latest research in the fields of molecular biology, microscopy, and X-ray crystallography.
medical illustration of Visual Science has have developed a web application demonstrating the structure of the skull. Human skull is a complex structure that includes 23 bones of different shape, size and function. The application allows to see the skull from different angles and to highlight individual bones either by clicking on them or on the captions (available in five languages).
medical animation of This short animation demonstrates the mechanism of delivery of small molecule DNA repair inhibitors that directly target the tumor microenvironment. This type of tumor-specific drugs (TSD) is developed by Cybrexa Therapeutics. This entirely new approach leverages a novel tumor-localizing peptide technology developed by an internationally recognized research laboratory at Yale, and have a potential to change the paradigm of drug delivery, and greatly enhance the therapeutic index.
medical illustration of This scientifically accurate 3D model of the immunoglobulin G was initially made by Visual Science for the Biotechnology for Beginners textbook, published by Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Later the model was also used by Roche, one of the world’s leading pharma companies. Visual Science is skilled in modelling molecular structures and has a collection of scientifically accurate models of antibodies that includes IgA, IgM and IgE in addition to the IgG shown here.
medical animation of The Zika virus animation is based on a thorough, scientifically accurate 3D model of the Zika virion at the atomic level. It incorporates recently published scientific research and Visual Science’s own computational simulations to present a complete picture of the virus down to individual viral proteins with RNA and lipid membrane fragments.
medical illustration of This scientifically accurate 3D model of the Ebola virus was initially made for a poster, which recieved Honorable Mention in the
medical illustration of In this human brain 3D model forebrain structures are shown in brown color and all the other structures are depicted in grey. Fragments of the cranial nerves are shown in orange.
medical animation of Visual Science’s human immunodeficiency virus model summarizes the results from more than 100 of the latest scientific publications in the fields of virology, The model has appeared on the cover of Nature Medicine; included in Stanley Plotkin’s Vaccines; featured in presentations by the Nobel Prize-winning virologist Françoise Barré-Sinoussi; and covered by The New York Times, National Geographic, Wired, Popular Science, and other popular periodicals.
medical illustration of This is a scientifically accurate 3D model of a non-enveloped viral particle of the human papillomavirus (HPV). The model was made for Viral Park — Visual Science's non-profit project which goals are to educate general public and promote further scientific research.
