Exhibit Opening: Seeing the Invisible: 50 Years of Macromolecular Visualization

Protein Ribbon Visualization
Icon calendar
Wednesday, February 26, 2020
Icon time
4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Icon speaker
Professors Dave and Jane Richardson

Help us celebrate the opening of our newest exhibit in the Chappell Family Gallery. "Seeing the Invisible" explores the history of protein visualization by following the contributions of Duke biochemistry professors Dave and Jane Richardson, who have spent over five decades researching these molecular building blocks of life and finding ways to help both scientists and other people better understand and appreciate their structures.

Through drawings, models, and digital imagery, visitors can explore visualizations of the complex shapes of proteins with a surprisingly strong influence from art and analogies. Materials are on loan from the Richardson Lab of Duke University and the Duke Medical Center Archives. The exhibit will remain on display through July 21, 2020.
