This exhibition shows creative responses to research in metabolic science.  The Jurors, Dr. Giudo Verbeck in the Department of Chemistry and Andrew DeCaen in the Department of Studio Art have organized students around this theme in an effort to promote interdisciplinary cooperation, cross-pollination of ideas and collaboration from different disciplines.  Students were encouraged to create new ways of understanding by responding to the difficult information surrounding metabolic processes and disorders such as diabetes.  Scholarships for a selection of the students showing in the exhibition will be announced at the reception. 

This project is funded and sponsored by generous support from: 
the Office of the Vice President for Research, the Institute for Advancement of the Arts, 
the College of Visual Arts and Design, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Department of Chemistry.
