Monash Sensory Science Events
Friday June 30th, 2023
Discover the science of autoimmunity from leading scientists through accessible multi-sensory, multi-modal artworks and exhibits, including displays by the MonashAssistive Technologies and Society.
From handcrafted immune cells made of clay, food, paper, fabrics to technologies and interactive displays exploring autoimmune processes, you will learn about the ways in which the body mistakenly attacks its own organs and tissues, resulting in autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis and celiac disease.
Prepare for an enhanced experience with interactive multi-sensory science books and captivating autoimmunity data sonifications, where data is turned into a musical language.
This event is free and open to all.
