To celebrate the John Innes Centre’s 50th anniversary in Norwich, local artist Malca Schotten exhibits a collection of science-inspired charcoal art pieces.

Each piece is designed around a different area of cutting-edge research currently being conducted at this centre of global excellence, and aims to convey the life of the people behind the science.

Research areas that are depicted include developing polio vaccines and Zika diagnostics from plants, the search for new antibiotics and investigating the shape of plants.

The art collection will also be shown at John Innes Centre to commemorate the institute’s move from Bayfordbury to Norwich.
