What is Biomedical Animation? What does a Biomedical Animator do? How do you become one?

Join multi-award winning Biomedical Animator Dr Maja Divjak of the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, as she answers these questions and demonstrates how 3D animation can be used to visualise the invisible world inside our cells. Maja will discuss why Biomedical Animation is essential for communicating about biology in the digital age, just what is involved in creating an award-winning animation and her career path to becoming a Biomedical Animator.

Maja’s creations have exhibited twice at the Vivid Festival of Light, Music and Ideas and have won multiple awards including Best of Show for both Science and Health categories at the Doctors Without Borders Film Festival, Best Documentary Short, Award of Excellence at the Vegas Movie Awards and Official Selection at the international science film festival, SCINEMA. Her latest production was also included in the extremely competitive Computer Animation Festival at SIGGRAPH Asia 22.
