Exhibit Opening: Seeing the Invisible: 50 Years of Macromolecular Visualization

Wednesday, February 26, 2020

4:30pm - 6:00pm
The Chappell Family Gallery (Perkins Library)
West Campus
Remarks at 5:00 p.m. in the Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room (Rubenstein Library 153, next door to the Chappell Family Gallery). 
Help us celebrate the opening of the new exhibit in the Chappell Family Gallery.
Seeing the Invisible explores the history of protein visualization by following the contributions of Duke biochemistry professors Dave and Jane Richardson, who have spent over five decades researching these molecular building blocks of life and finding ways to help both scientists and other people better understand and appreciate their structures.
Through drawings, models, and digital imagery, visitors can explore visualizations of the complex shapes of proteins with a surprisingly strong influence from art and analogies. Materials are on loan from the Richardson Lab of Duke University and the Duke Medical Center Archives. The exhibit will remain on display through July 21, 2020.
Light refreshments will be served.
To learn more about the Richardsons, visit the finding aid or contact the archives staff. Jane’s oral history interview is available upon request at the Archives.
