This winter, a new coronavirus is scaring the world. Coronavirus is actually a sort for virus, that is not normally very aggressive. Coronavirus normally give us common colds, but the last decades, new and more aggressive diseases caused by coronavirus have emerged. SARS (in the period 2002-2004) and MERS (around 2018) both belonged to the […]
Do you just need your daily coffee to function properly? Maybe you should get your sleep instead, because caffeine in the coffee tricks your brain to ‘think’ its’ not tired. This is because caffeine binds to the adenosine receptors in the brain. Normally, the adenosine receptors bind adenosine – and adenosine is a “tiredness”-signal as […]
I have just helped the australian biotech-company Captixbio with an animation about a new device/implant to be used in Type 1 diabetes. I can’t show the animation here yet, but this is an image from the animation that shows a transparent person with the pancreas highlighted in pink. The full animation will be added to […]
Happy new year! I have just made an animation about myocardial infarct for a biotech company (Resotherpharma) and in the process, I created this beating heart, complete with atria and ventricles. The full animation will be added to my porfolio later.
The nobel prize in physiology / medicine was recently announced. And it went to a research area I have worked with myself (at Lundbeck), namely HIF / hypoxia biology. We published a paper on our findings, it can be found here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4061615/pdf/ISRN.NEUROSCIENCE2013-598587.pdf All animal cells need oxygen in order to use the energy from food […]

And thanks to virus-expert Ramona Trebbien from Statens Serum institute, who has kindly checked the animation. https://youtu.be/wzzMR390Nbc
I took some time to paint a picture outside, but the color seemed to attract wasps! One of them stung me, and that hurt! So I got the idea to find out why it hurts and animate it:
Large parts of the unique rainforest in Amazonas, Brazil, is on fire. So sad! Already as a child, I could cry over rainforest deforestation. But why is that we need forests? They are the home of millions of organisms (plants, animals, microbes, fungi), they are beautiful and that should be enough reason! But with all […]
The summer break is over and I am ready to start making animations again! And Blender 2.8 has now been officially released, WOW! Just before summer, I made this short animation (using Blender 2.8 beta) showing a brain, that mysteriously comes out of a PC by accident…
This animation shows a ‘rhapsody’ of the animation projects, Moving Science has made througout the first year. It includes many different, interesting, areas of biology.
