Team Brain showcases real scientific images of brain cells (astrocytes). Biomedical engineers are developing injectable physical supports, along with biological and chemical cues to help astrocytes repair without scarring after brain injury.  


Francesca is as a biomedical engineer. Through her research she designed a material system that can help the brain repair after traumatic injury. This involves injecting a physical support into the brain along with biological and chemical cues required to control the scarring process after injury, allowing repair to take place.


Mahnie used fluorescent microscope images of the astrocytes (cells in the brain), injured brain tissue and the repair process. These images were captured by Francesca. These scientific images were used to create a beautiful layered brain artwork.
