Who are we?


SCROLL DOWN

Who are we?


 
 

Sci-illustrate is a group of passionate scientists and illustrators, lead by Dr. Radhika Patnala.

Visual communication of complex ideas and mechanisms is imperative to the biotech industry. 

   With this in mind, Sci-illustrate, with its base in Munich, Germany was conceived to provide life-science companies, universities and organisations with a reliable and scientifically informed platform for their design, business development & marketing needs.

 
 

Dr. Radhika Patnala

Founder & Director

Radhika Patnala, PhD

Radhika Patnala, PhD

A valedictorian, Dr. Patnala received her doctorate in 2017 from National University of Singapore. Her doctoral research specialized in Neuroscience and Epigenetics. Before which she conducted a year of research in Cancer Biology during her Masters of Biotechnology (Hons) at The Australian National University.

Through Sci-Illustrate, she strives to bridge the line between science and art and uses her eclectic skill set to solve design problems for biotech and pharma.  

Sci-illustrate operates with an ultimate aim to enhance effective science communication within the research community and beyond.

Dr. Roopali Chaudhary (square).jpg

Dr. Roopali Chaudhary

Content Editor Women in Science, Sci-Illustrate Stories

Dr. Chaudhary has an MSc in Genetics (University of Waterloo, Canada) studying Drosophila embryogenesis (fruit fly embryo development), and a PhD in Cellular & Molecular Biology (McMaster University, Canada) studying intestinal inflammation in a novel mouse model. She furthered her career in a 3-year post-doctoral fellowship studying the immune memory in food allergies (McMaster University, Canada). Dr. Chaudhary's continually strives to make science accessible, be with through her edible science art (custom cakes), teaching or her outreach activities.


Dr. Sumbul Jawed Khan

Content Editor Women in Science, Sci-Illustrate stories

Dr. Khan received her PhD in Biological Sciences and Bioengineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, where she studied the role of microenvironment in cancer progression and tumor formation. She is passionate about discovering the fundamental principles that regulate cellular growth in multicellular organs, and how their disruption leads to diseased state. This interest led Dr. Khan to pursue her postdoctoral work at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and understand the gene regulatory networks that are important for tissue regeneration after damage or wounding. 

 Dr. Khan is committed to science outreach activities, to make scientific research understandable and relatable to the non-scientific community. She believes it is essential to inspire young people to apply scientific methods to tackle the challenges currently faced by humanity. In her new role at Sci-Illustrate, Dr. Khan endeavors to utilize art to effectively communicate science, and generate inspiration and excitement towards science.

DR. ELEONORA ADAMI

Content Editor/ Contributing Artist Women in Science, Sci-Illustrate stories

Eleonora Adami is a proud descendant of ancient Romans.

Eleonora did her doctoral research at the Max Delbrück Center in Berlin with a focus on translational regulation in animal models for cardiovascular and metabolic traits. She is now a postdoctoral research fellow at Duke-NUS in Singapore in Prof. Stuart Cook’s lab.

Eleonora thinks of herself as a carrier pigeon, always on the go, trying to find new adventures and challenges. Ok, maybe pigeons are not very adventurous, but they were once useful to deliver important messages. One of the messages she likes to bring across is that we need more art in scientific practices. Creative thinking benefits both disciplines.

 A passion for illustration has always accompanied her and percolates in her scientific work. She started the collaboration with the Sci-Illustrate team after attending their course on scientific illustration.

Contributing Artist Women in Science, Sci-Illustrate stories

Expressing myself graphically has always been a source of great satisfaction for me. With my work, I can provide many things to others in different positive ways, as well as get a lot in return, because in every goal achieved, in every process, there is a lot to learn.

Dr. Ju Lin Tan

Content Editor Women in Science, Sci-Illustrate Stories

Dr. Tan received her PhD in molecular biology and biochemistry in 2017 from La Trobe University, Australia, where she examined the interplay of bacterial proteases. Being passionate in understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying human health, she joined Monash University, Australia, as a research fellow to study mitochondrial dynamics in a human cell. She is passionate about outreach activities and she enjoys bridging the gap between science and society.

In June 2018, she joined Sci-illustrate to participate in projects that aim to promote effective science communication to the scientific community and general public.
