TORONTO, July 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Art and science are often diametrically opposed. The stereotype of left-brain/right-brain predominance prevails – we assume a molecular biologist would no sooner pick up a paintbrush than a graphic designer would don a lab coat and contemplate the inner workings of the human body. But, this doesn't hold true in the world of medical illustration. And this summer, over 400 of the world's leading medical and scientific artists, game developers, simulation experts, researchers, animators and innovators will gather in Toronto to prove it.
Presented by the international non-profit organization, the Association of Medical Illustrators (AMI), ILLUMINATE is a four-day event of renowned speakers, technical workshops, and artwork displays, that is open for registration to anyone with a passion for the melding of science and art. Offerings include:
