Art, ethics, bio-politics and stem cell research

A professor from the University for the Creative Arts (UCA) has created a body of artwork to advance the public’s understanding of stem cell research.

Kathleen Rogers, Professor of Media, Arts & Science at UCA Farnham, has been working with researchers at Southampton University to create a multi-screen video and sound installation of macro-images which communicate the key processes in regenerative medicine.

Professor Rogers said: “The aim of the project is to stimulate interest, lively public debate and reflection on art, ethics and bio-politics surrounding stem cell research.

“An artist’s reflection on scientific research, such as stem cell and regenerative medicine, can promote a broader understanding of science and inform public debate on the ethical and societal challenges of contemporary biomedicine.
