LIFE goes Goethe Galerie: the profile line plans an exhibition in Jena's biggest shopping mall, sharing our passion for science with the public.
For this, we need your active support and are looking for all the beautiful, interesting, and impressive pictures that were created by or show science - photographs, microscopic images. We are looking forward to numerous contributions all across the life sciences: biology, chemistry, medicine, informatics, physics, geology and all interdisciplinary fields in between. The best pictures will be selected and will be shown for two weeks to the general public of the city of Jena in the Goethe Galerie.
Become part of this exhibition with your picture, and send your contribution (picture + short description, name, affiliation) to firstname.lastname@example.org until 28.02.2022. We are looking forward to numerous submissions!
As a follow-up initiative of the successful Arts & Science project "Entstehung einer künstlerischen Tatsache" we want to start a cooperation with Tamara Knapp, who is running the Space for Visual Research at the Bauhaus-University in Weimar, and therefore we need contributions from researchers of diverse research fields in the life sciences:
We are looking for doctoral researcher and post-doc volunteers to deliver short presentations (~ 30 min) on scientific visualisation to be part of the "Space for Visual Research" course. This course is attended by Bsc and MSc students in Visual Communication and Media Arts.
Specifically, we are looking for presentations about tools, methodology and outputs of scientific visualization, rather than the specific research questions behind it. We would like to cover a range of scientific visualisation platforms, so anything from microscopy and photography to molecular structure elucidation and statistical data analysis with graphical output (heatmaps, metabolic/interaction networks, PCAs, histograms/ data transformation etc) can be included. The presentation will be followed by a discussion with the Bauhaus University students.
When? Each Thursday, 10:00 – 12:00, starting in January
Where? Bauhaus University, Weimar / online (zoom)
If you are interested in taking part in this interdisciplinary Arts & Science initiative and in presenting your methods to an audience that might look at it from a very different perspective, then please email Hendrik Huthoff (Hendrik.email@example.com; CC to Franziska.firstname.lastname@example.org) with a brief summary of your proposed contribution.

The 12-person coordination team serves as the reporting and strategic body within the LIFE profile line. The spokesperson (currently Prof. E. Kothe) and deputy (currently Prof. M. Bauer) are elected every 3 years. Additionally, the steering committee is supported by a coordinator (Dr. Franziska Eberl). A list of all members of the steering committee can be found here [pdf, 50 kb] de.
