Louisiana Tech’s New Frontiers in Biomedical Research Seminar Series will partner with the University’s VISTA Center to host a webinar on The Evolution of the UIC Biomedical Visualization Curriculum Monday, April 24 at 3:30 p.m.

All are welcome to register for the free webinar through the link below.

Dr. Leah Lebowicz, Program Director of the Biomedical Visualization (BVIS) Program at University of Illinois Chicago will provide information about the graduate program, talk about opportunities in medical and scientific illustration, and share stories from her own career as a professional medical illustrator.

Lebowicz earned her Bachelor of Art from University of Texas and its College of Fine Arts before earning her Master of Science in Biomedical Visualization from the University of Illinois, Chicago. Shortly after completing her graduate degree, Lebowicz joined the faculty of UIC as Associate Program Director, and now Program Director.

While working at UIC, Lebowicz earned her EdD in Adult Education from Capella University in 2020 and created a wellness program for UIC BVIS students that establishes a supportive culture around mental health.

Whether conscious of it or not, we are surrounded by medical and scientific illustrations on a daily basis. Tech’s VISTA (Visual Integration of Science Through Art) Center encourages undergraduates to explore this intersection of art and science. Through the VISTA Center, students have the opportunity to create visuals that communicate complex scientific findings and medical information. Through academic minors, the VISTA Center strives to prepare students for entry to graduate programs like the one lead by Lebowicz at UIC.

Please join us to learn more about this program and opportunities in medical illustration.
