Intrigued by the imagery of the 2018 Cambridge Science Festival? Curious how these visuals came to be? Join us in the Public Galleries of MIT’s Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research to learn more about this year’s Festival graphics. Hear from their creators—MIT scientists and engineers working to improve human health through scientific investigation and technological innovation—about the stories behind these award-winning images, and learn more about their work as researchers and artists, crafting visual representations of biomedical complexities. This event is free*; no pre-registration required. However, we'd love for you to join and share the event on Facebook. ​
