Fashioning Cancer

Fashion and Science don’t seem to have much in common… but not for long!  Recently, Jacqueline Firkins, a costume designer in the Department of Theatre and Film at University of British Columbia (UBC), approached Chris Naus, a professor of cell biology in the UBC Faculty of Medicine about a collaboration using his cell images on clothing to raise public awareness of breast cancer (More details in the ASCB blog). The result: a beautiful collection of gowns featuring microscopic images of cancer.  Check out the full collection: Fashioning Cancer: The Correlation Between Destruction and Beauty.
