Multimedia Zoom Into a Human Hand

This interactive zoom, inspired by Eames "Powers of Ten," allows visitors to travel from the familiar scale of their hand down to DNA deep within a cell. This zoom is designed as a stand-alone visitor experience, or to be used as part of a presentation to orient visitors to the size of the nanoscale. You must follow the instructions included with the files to install the Adobe Air application! Please "Download All Files (zip)" and read the instructions first. The resource tab links are also a necessary part of the process in order to run the application directly on your...

Zoom Into the Human Bloodstream poster

This illustration shows the circulatory system across 10 orders of magnitude. Using the conventions of visual perspective the image travels in one continuous “landscape” from the human scale at the top to the atomic scale in the foreground. Placing objects from the circulatory system in one frame clarifies the connections between components, highlighting the system’s reliance on structures at very different scales. This illustration won the 2008 Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge from NSF and Science magazine! This illustration is available as a poster with...

Intro to Nanomedicine video

What is Nanomedicine? This is the introductory component for the Nanomedicine exhibit package; but the video on it's own is also an informative stand-alone media piece for other uses. The structure includes a text panel and a narrated-and-captioned 2.5 minute video which plays on demand in either English or Spanish on a 32-inch LCD screen. The video's colorful animation and researcher commentary complements the accompanying text panel to provide a brief overview of some of the basic ideas and goals of nanomedicine.

Stealth Imaging with Iron Nanoparticles Video

"Stealth Imaging with Iron Nanoparticles" is an 8-minute video that tells the research story of Ralph Weissleder and Mukesh Harisinghani, who collaborated on the design of a clinical trial to determine if an injection of specially-designed iron-oxide nanoparticles could enhance a diagnostic image produced by an MRI machine to the extent that the spread of cancer could be accurately assessed. At least in the case of prostate cancer, as Dr. Weissleder tells our producer in this story, “The results were stunning.” Dr. Weissleder and Dr. Harisinghani's experimental cancer...
