  • Gout

    This 3D medical animation about gout describes the cause of gout and various side effects caused by gout. Illustrated within are the different physiological conditions that cause or are caused by gout. Also described are related topics such as purines role in gout, uric acid production and removal from the body, hyperuricemia, dehydration, and tophus formation.

  • The Clot

    This short animation focuses on three main components of a blood clot: red blood cells, fibrin, and platelets. This "mini" animation, along with other smaller segments, would be used to educate cardiologists and patients, and to address growing physician and public concern about cardiovascular illness associated with ischemic complications such as myocardial infarction and death. This animation was developed as an exercise in design concepts with the intent to create engaging primary and secondary visual elements and integrate dynamic typography. Post production focused on creating a viable production style.

  • Acne

    This 3D medical animation about acne describes the most common types of acne and various treatments to help alleviate symptoms of acne. Illustrated within are the different types and common locations of whiteheads, blackheads, pustules (pimples), and cysts within the skin and hair follicles. Also described are the various causes of acne different types of treatment: benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, alpha hydroxy acid, and sulfur.

  • Peptic Ulcers

    This 3D medical animation on peptic (stomach) ulcers describes common locations of ulcers: esophageal ulcers located in your esophagus, gastric ulcers located in the antrum of your stomach, and duodenal ulcers located in the portion of your stomach connected to your small intestines. Also shown are the different causes and complications of ulcers, medications, and three different surgical treatments for ulcers: Vagotomy, Antrectomy, and Pyloroplasty.

  • Developmental Origins of the Eye

    The inablility of microscopic slides to properly project certain three-dimensional events, such as embryo development or the cellular response to molecular signals, creates a disconnection between the visualization and the comprehension of the scientific material. This animation clarifies the biology of tissue migration and the formation of the primitive structures of the eye.

  • Mast Cell Functions

    Mast cells participate in both acute and chronic inflammatory responses. As sentinel cells distributed throughout the body's vascularized tissues, they release a variety of biologically active mediators when an antigen is encountered. The mediators cause smooth muscle cells to dilate, endothelial cells to contract, and spaces between cells increase exudation of plasma and blood cells. Chemotactic recruitment of white blood cells can amplify the inflammatory response even in the absence of continuous allergen exposure.
