Science, As You’ve Never Seen It
WALTER AND ELIZA HALL INSTITUTE OF MEDICAL RESEARCH
If you took a walk through the Fed Square Atrium recently, you were probably unaware you’d stumbled across cutting edge research.
That’s because WEHI researchers presenting at the annual “Art of Science” Exhibition, held from August 12-21, displayed snapshots of their science as not bar graphs and plots. Instead, they showcased a connoisseur’s selection of artistic imagery that could have adorned the walls of art galleries – the intricate structures of biology at molecular scale.

Monash University’s Dr Kelly-Ann Bowles is half way through her internship with the Shadow Minister for Health in the Victorian Parliament, Mary Wooldridge. According to Dr Bowles, her participation in Ms Wooldridge’s electorate and parliament offices has been incredibly exciting since she started at the beginning of May.
“This has been an amazing opportunity. It is sometimes the more informal chats over lunch, discussing the similarities between political life and research life, that have added to the experience. A number of Mary’s staff have been with her for years and their experience and passion is amazing.” – Dr Kelly Bowles
