Energising the living fabric of your body: The molecular engines of Metabolism

Dr Drew Berry, WEHI


Dr Drew Berry

The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research

I create biomedical animations that combine cinema and science to reveal the microscopic worlds inside our bodies.

My career began in cell biology and microscopy at The University of Melbourne. I have used this knowledge to bring a rigorous scientific approach to every topic, immersing myself in relevant research and current data to ensure the frontier of human discovery is authentically reconstructed.

Since 1995, I have worked as a biomedical animator at the institute. My animations have exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum, Museum of Modern Art, the Royal Institute of Great Britain and the University of Geneva.
