Jo Berry has spent six months working with scientists at the University of Notingham, who use microscopy to study how a “hunger” hormone stimulates our body’s cells. A better understanding of these processes may help pave the way for new drug treatments for obesity and diabetes.
She is currently turning the research into a stunning series of digital drawings, lightboxes and animations to promote the connection between art and science.
