Skin Microbiomes and Magazine Publications

It's kind of a crazy exciting feeling to open up the mailbox and see something you drew in there. This is an illustration I made to accompany a press release from my university earlier this year, which described current research being conducted on bacterial communities on the skin, and how these change with neurodermitis (eczema). It was so much fun to read the researchers' findings, see how these bacterial communities change and how it is being researched, and to produce diagrams to communicate it.

Now, months later, the research is being covered in this issue of Wirtschaftsmagazin for dermatologists, and I'm totally thrilled to have my pictures included - not just inside the magazine accompanying the article, but on the cover! Huge thanks to Katharina Thier, the author (who I actually met last year at a several-day seminar on visual science communication), who spotted my work in the press release, and gave me the opportunity to have it included in the magazine. If you read German, find her article here!
