It all began when Sarah chose science over art school. She earned an undergraduate degree in Biomedical Sciences and a master’s degree in Biochemistry and Cell Biology before turning her eyes to medical school. But art never left her.
“I realized it’s a very valuable combination that not everybody has. You get people who are visually talented or very scientifically minded but that doesn't always cross over,” she observes. “A lot of scientists aren't artists so, when they're trying to convey their research, they have trouble. So, I came up with Designs that Cell.”
Today, Designs that Cell is a growing business that creates scientific figures and illustrations for research articles and publications, grants, information sheets and online courses.
