An exhibition of new commissions by artists examining key areas of medical science

Helen Chadwick worked with scientists and staff at the Assisted Conception Unit of Kings College Hospital. Letizia Galli's work was informed by findings in the field of neurology, and Donald Rodney's deeply personal reflection on medical science stemmed from his own long-term treatment for sickle-cell anaemia.
