Event Details

The Wistar Institute Leadership Council invites you to the opening reception of

Small World 

BIG WORLD

A nexus of small and large - art and science - teaching and exploring


On display will be the exhibit of winning images from Nikon’s 2013
Small World photography contest. These photos provide the viewer
with a glimpse into a world so small it can only be viewed through
the lens of a microscope.

Also, for one night only, The Wistar Institute’s collection of largescale
anatomical sculptures constructed by William Rush will be
on display. Dr. Caspar Wistar, our Institute’s namesake, used these
early 19th-century models to help illustrate comparative anatomy
in his medical lectures.

Organizer

The Wistar Institute

The Wistar Institute is the nation’s first independent institution devoted to medical research and training.  The Institute has evolved from its beginnings as an anatomical teaching museum to its present-day status as an international leader in basic biomedical research.

 

In 1972, The Wistar Institute was designated a National Cancer Institute Cancer Center in basic research—a distinction it holds to this day.

Wistar discoveries have led to the development of vaccines for rabies, rubella, and rotavirus, the identification of genes associated with breast, lung, and prostate cancer, and the development of monoclonal antibodies and other significant research technologies and tools.
