Group Research Collaboration

An active collaboration with the following research group exists:

Bio-Procedural Design in Science, Art, and Architecture

Please see the mutual website at: http://bioprodesign.org/

This interdisciplinary research project aims at increasing the connection between creators of scientific, artistic and architectural designs by analyzing and integrating bioinformatics modelling with forms of visualization in design and architecture software.

The bioinformatics paradigm has strongly altered and reshaped processes of knowledge generation and forms of education in biomedicine, which are still poorly understood from both a historical and philosophical viewpoint. This partial project aims at analyzing and contextualizing such processes in their greater historical trajectory and technological dimension.

Members of the group include:

Dr. Christian Jacob, Bioinformatics

Dr. Faramarz Samavati, Computer Science

Prof. Gerald Hushlak, Art

Dr. Frank W. Stahnisch, History of Medicine

Prof. Joshua Taron, Architecture
