Virtual Exhibition - The Art of Structural Biology

  • -
  • - (AEST)

At the Australian Research Council Centre for Cryo-Electron Microscopy of Membrane Proteins (CCeMMP) we explore and analyse the structural biology of living materials.

This National Science Week, we're showcasing the artistic flair of our structural biologists! 

The link to our first virtual exhibition, Bench to Art, will be revealed on Tuesday, 13 August, 2024. The virtual exhibition link will be live for two weeks, from 13 to 27 August, 2024.

Our goal is to share stories of exploration and discovery in structural biology with the broader community.

Structural biologists (not just CCeMMP members) are invited to submit creations for display.

Who can enter?

This is a free event to promote structural biology research. We welcome submissions from anyone:

  • using the technique cryo-EM in their research, or;

  • working on membrane proteins using other structural biology techniques (tomography, crystallography etc).

Closing date

Closing date for submissions is 5:00 pm (AEST), 8 August, 2024.


Guidelines and the submission form are available on the CCeMMP website.


  • First Prize Award ($300 AUD): First Prize will be awarded by a judging panel composed of creatives in the scientific field and artists. Images will be evaluated based on their aesthetic appeal, not on the data they depict.
  • People’s Choice Award ($100 AUD): People’s Choice will be awarded based on voter's choice. The community are encouraged to vote for their favourite artwork during the exhibition.
