Exhibiting September 3 – October 30, 2019
“One day, long ago, RNA learned how to move, and so life began.” — Harry Noller
Angela Messmer-Blust brings to the Artist in Residence Series an exhibit that "illustrates the breadth of research that the RTI is undertaking, developing novel therapies for which RNA is the therapeutic target or modality in pathologies from pregnancy complications to neurodegenerative diseases." On display are 12 images crafted via microscopy, with an outcome that shows striking molecular and cellular imagery. What each image represents, which is most remarkable, is the collaboration between the scientific and clinical research communities here at UMMS that are dedicated to finding cures through biological discoveries. And with this exhibit we get a glimpse into that process.
