Quest for antibodies - When arts meets science
When art meets science...
... and hyperflexible dancing bodies meet their hyperflexible antibodies!
Inspired by recent research from Utrecht University’s Hecklab, of the Utrecht Institute for Pharmaceutical Sciences and the Bijvoet Centre for Biomolecular Research, a unique collaboration emerged between video artists from Sensu and performers from the Aerialettes. This artist impression visualises how the best antibodies to combat diseases can be found in our own bodies.
What if we could discover which antibody fights which threat the best, and turn these antibodies into biotherapeutics? We could then use them to treat patients who are not making the right antibodies; a cure that stems from within our own body?
