medical illustration of This 3D rendering of the virus that causes COVID-19 is based on AMI Members' combined efforts and structures from the Protein Data Bank. The image includes numerous M surface protein dimers courtesy of the Feig lab, a few E pores (PDB 5X29), and several large glycosylated trimer S spikes courtesy of Rommie Amaro at the UCSD Amaro Lab.
medical animation of The Vaccine Curiosity Project came about as a way to help people, who have legitimate concerns, find the info they need to make informed decisions. These modules address common concerns people have about COVID-19 vaccines with the goal to give viewers evidence-based information, quickly.
medical illustration of The purpose of this large-format illustration was to highlight the client's robust industry knowledge of antibody resources in a way that is aesthetically pleasing and invites being hung in a communal lab space while secondarily advertising the client's cutting-edge antibody production portfolio.

medical illustration of 3D model created from a mixture of patient inner ear micro-CT data and current literature on vestibulocochlear 3D shape. 
medical illustration of This award-winning piece was created for neuro-oncologist Dr. Charles Conrad. The image depicts a modified sero-type 5 adenovirus as it enters and replicates within glioblastoma tumor cells. The image was created using the following software: Pixologic® Zbrush, Autodesk® 3DS Max, and Adobe® Photoshop.
medical illustration of This image (one of a series of four total images) highlights the mechanism underlying a provider's decisions to implement combination treatment modalities to improve aphasia symptoms in the brain of a patient with a left hemisphere stroke.
medical animation of Animation by MeCo Visuals for Team IUT at Dell Medical School at the University of Texas. Visual explanation of the mechanistic problem, and the proposed solution developed by Team IUT, of Intrauterine device expulsion in an immediately postpartum uterus.
medical animation of In the client's proposed mechanism shown here, their novel Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF) device material is slowly resorbed by the body at the same rate that new bone is deposited by osteoblasts. The resulting cervical vertebral fusion is entirely composed of the patient's newly-generated bone.
medical illustration of This proposed cover for Nature Biotechnology highlights the client’s technology for studying tumor samples. Using a tiny network of mirrors beneath the cancer slide, a researcher can choose to reflect light only on a particular type of tissue. Light-activated RNA oligos are then cleaved and sucked into a small tube above the tissue sample. This novel technique gives the researcher both morphological and genetic data from the same reusable sample.
medical illustration of Final model of a cross-sectional uterus featuring an intrauterine device, or IUD. This model was incorporated into a 3D animation for the Women's Health department in Dell Medical School at The University of Texas.
medical illustration of This image (one of a series of four total images) highlights the mechanism underlying a provider's decisions to implement combination treatment modalities to improve aphasia symptoms in the brain of a patient with a left hemisphere stroke.
medical illustration of This collaborative illustration, created with Sam Bond, accompanies a paper introducing a new concept in rehabilitative intervention called the Clinical Arcade, utilizing commercially successful games and virtual reality programs to engage patients in cardiac rehabilitation. Taking inspiration from classic arcades and pinball machines, the piece playfully challenges practitioners to tilt their patient materials into the exploratory world of gaming.
medical illustration of Diversity in the microbiome.
medical illustration of Molecules involved in digestion & metabolism within the microbiome of the small and large intestines. The illustration was created to display an ingestible microbiome modulator targeted toward patients with diabetes.
medical animation of This animation is one part of a collaborative research project created for Dr. Patel of the Craniofacial Center at the University of Illinois at Chicago. In this animation, alveolar cleft and alveolar bone graft surgical repair are visually explained to preoperative pediatric patients and their caregivers. The final animation was presented by the illustrator at the Annual Meeting of the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association in April of 2016.
medical animation of Highlighting the novel, minimally-invasive spinal fusion technique pioneered by ZynFusion.
