NIH: Medical Posters

NIH: Medical PostersMedical posters drawn by artists at the National Institutes of Health help alert scientists to seminars on specialized subjects and attract public attention to medical topics of broad interest. Ideas for posters are most often gleaned from the human body itself. Many of the configurations found in science – a cell, muscle, or calcium channel – have great graphic appeal which the artist can often readily adapt into an eye-catching poster. The following medical posters represent a small fraction of the total number of posters designed over the past 30 years by artists in the NIH’s Medical Arts and Photography Branch.” [via Vigna-Marú]
