POSTPONED!! “When cells show up on clothes.” Art4Science Panel Discussion on 21.06.2021


Today, 21.06.2021 at 19:00 St. Anna Children's Cancer Research Institute (CCRI) is organizing the 2nd panel discussion together with the Wiener Zeitung as part of our FWF project Art4Science (

Art and science are considered two opposing disciplines from which society expects completely different outputs. In the "Art4Science" project, St. Anna CCRI is taking on the challenge of merging the opposing poles of art and science in order to communicate research to the general public in a sensual way.

The second discussion of the series is themed "When cells show up on clothes". It will put up for debate whether and how the collaboration between fashion design and medical research offers an opportunity to raise awareness of scientific topics that are rarely dealt with in everyday life. What role does fashion design play in society, what is the value of fashion, and what makes the difference? The basic question is: Do science and fashion have anything in common at all?
