How pairing an artist and a scientist helps creatively communicate bioscience research

In the Phoenix Bioscience Core, art and science converge. Located on the top floor of the latest downtown Phoenix building, the Artist + Researcher Exhibition showcases collaborations between ten teams, each consisting of an artist and a researcher. The diverse scientific topics and art mediums come together with a unified objective: to express research through artistic representation.
