Explore the power of viruses captured through painting.


When Suzi Morris met Raoul Coombes, Imperial Professor of Medical Oncology, she had reached a turning point in her research.

Having long battled viral keratitis, which has affected her vision since childhood, she perceived a paradox in discovering the power of viruses — including her own — is being unleashed in creating cancer therapies.

In an era of advancing technologies, Morris constructs a narrative of sensations in which personal, scientific, and historical references intersect.

You can meet Suzi Morris alongside Imperial virologists and immunologists between 14:00-16:00 on Saturday at the exhibition.
