Learn more about the aging eye from VISIONS, a unique project that involves novel UC San Diego research and an exhibit of watercolor art.
Explore the unexpected intersection between art and science brought to you by a scientist-artist duo. Dorota Skowronska-Krawczyk, Ph.D., an Assistant Professor at the UC San Diego Shiley Eye Institute, investigates the genetics and molecular mechanisms of age-related eye diseases such as glaucoma. Images captured through her microscope are getting a new life thanks to watercolors by Eva Henry’s, a Toronto-based artist.
During the event, we will be also showing a series of watercolors by Eva Henry inspired by Skowronska-Krawczyk's research.
Dr. Skowronska-Krawczyk will give a short talk about her mission to decipher the secrets of the aging eye and her vision to make science more accessible for everyone through art.
