medical animation of Geras Healthcare Productions is a boutique studio with a signature cinematic 3D animation style defined by fully-realized biological environments, innovative visual and atmospheric effects and original musical soundtracks. Our videos promote understanding of complex medical stories in an immersive and absorbing way that both educates and entrances viewers. medical illustration of This large format 3D mural depicts the process by which proteins are targeted for degradation by sequential enzymatic ubiquitination. The ubiquitinized proteins are then degraded into short peptide segments by lytic enzymes lining the core of human 26S proteasomes. The image was created for a biotechnology firm focused on the development of immuno-therapies for cancer. medical illustration of This 3D illustration was created for a biotechnology firm. It shows monoclonal antibodies binding to molecules of the specific ligand they were designed to target. medical illustration of This is one of a very large series of illustrations on cells in which the featured cell(s) has been rendered in full color while the background is in B&W halftones. In this image a dendritic cell is involved in the uptake of antigens from a tumor cell. medical illustration of This illustration depicts the aerial fungal hyphae and reproductive sporing bodies of several common dermatophytes or skin fungi. I chose to create this scene as a 3-dimensional illustration, and in a glass-like material, to emphasize the translucent and jewel-like appearance of these organisms.
[ ANIMATION ]
medical illustration of This is one of a very large series of illustrations on cells in which the featured cell(s) has been rendered in full color while the background is in B&W halftones. The cells shown here are osteoclasts involved in the resorption of bone. medical illustration of This 3D illustration takes a dramatic view of chromosome pairs being pulled apart by the microtubules of the mitotic spindle during cell division. medical illustration of This 3D illustration of the limbic system places the focus on the amygdalae, two small pea-shaped structures on either side of the limbic system, that play a crucial role in the processing of emotional memory and experiences, including fear and anxiety. The amygdalae serve as a guage able to detect the degree of danger in our environments. They are central to the inappropriate reactions experienced by people who suffer from chronic phobias, obsessions and generalized anxiety. medical illustration of This 3D illustration was created for a biotechnology firm as a large format fine art painting on the subject of epigenetics. It depicts the role of histone 'tail' acetylation in the conversion of DNA from its heterochromatin state to its looser euchromatin state. medical illustration of This 3D illustration depicts a dramatic view of spermatozoa traveling within the lumen of a uterine (Fallopian) tube. The lumen is lined by secretory epithelial cells interspersed with ciliated columnar cells.
medical illustration of This illustration depicts the appearance of Trypanosome brucei protozoa within the bloodstream. T.brucei causes a lethal African illness known as 'sleeping sickness'. The image was created for editorial usage. medical illustration of This illustration on the subject of pediatric asthma shows the extravasation of inflammatory cells involved in the initiation of an an asthma attack, and the release of biologically active molecules into the environment. It was created for a global pharmaceutical client. medical illustration of The illustration shows part 1 of the mode of action of SIRP-alpha Fc in triggering tumor cells to give off an 'eat me' signal to phagocytic macrophages. This painting is the first  half of a 120 medical illustration of The illustration shows part 2 of the mode of action of SIRP-alpha Fc: the presentation of tumor antigens to CD8+T cells leading to the proliferation of cytotoxic T cells that are capable of triggering apoptosis of the tumor cells through their release of cytotoxins. This painting is the second half of a 120 medical illustration of This is one of a very large series of illustrations on cells in which the featured cell(s) has been rendered in full color while the background is in B&W halftones.
medical illustration of SHORT-LISTED for the 2016 WORLD ILLUSTRATION AWARDS. (Finalists as yet unannounced.) 
This 3-dimensional illustration shows the inflammatory environment of the papillary dermis as seen from beneath the epidermis in the early stages of psoriatic plaque development. This image was also used as the stylistic guide for a 3D animated video that our studio, Geras Healthcare Productions, created for a major pharmaceutical drug launch. medical illustration of This 3D image represents the ability of a fluorinated epilepsy drug to cross the 'blood brain barrier' (BBB). The BBB components shown include: pericytes encircling a capillary at the brain interface, astrocyte foot pads, and the basal lamina surrounding the BBB complex. The image was created as a large scale mural for a biotech firm. medical illustration of This 3 dimensional instructional illustration depicts the structures that comprise the blood-brain-barrier. It was created for a biotechnology firm. medical illustration of This fully 3D illustration displays a network of pyramidal neurons in the brain. The illustration was created for a global pharmaceutical client. medical illustration of These 3 views of a face were designed to show the most common facial characteristics of an Asian-Pacific woman. The illustrations formed the base art for a series of illustrations depicting the detailed anatomy of the face. The art was created for the Asian-pacific Botox market.
