For the past 6 years, undergraduate science students at Manchester Metropolitan Universityhave been exploring the relationships between microbiology and art, from the deterioration of artwork and cultural heritage, to the beauty of microscopic images, through the impact of infectious disease in history to the use of art to communicate messages about science to a range of audiences, and overtly ‘sci-art’ projects. Over 100 students worked on the project, producing a range of outputs that demonstrated skills in creativity, imagination and communication that lay well outside the realms of the typical undergraduate science curriculum. In the Loop was formed in 2008 by Professor Joanna Verran.

Exhibition preview at the MadLab, on 21st October, 6-9pm. In celebration of the beginning of the Manchester Science Festival 2011
