Stem cells to neurons-Johnson and Agbay

In a collaborative project, ceramic artist Sydnie Johnson (Art Education) depicts Biomedical grad student Andrew Agbay's research in ceramic form. Through a drug treatment, Agbay grows dopaminergic neurons from human stem cells. This growth is shown chronologically in Johnson's tile mural. This collaboration will be featured during IdeaFest and will then be installed in the Centre for Biomedical Research.
