Join a free screening of the 1966 sci-fi classic Fantastic Voyage. A miniaturised crew attempt to heal their injured colleague by travelling through his body. But in 2018, do advances in science and technology mean that science fiction is becoming closer to reality?
The screening of the film will be followed by an expert Q&A session and an interactive demonstration of virtual reality equipment allowing you travel inside a cell.
The expert panel will include University of New South Wales Associate Professor John McGhee. As Director of the 3D Visualisation Aesthetics Lab, John's work explores the visualisation of complex scientific and biomedical data using 3D animation and virtual reality technology.
The panel will also include University of Melbourne post-doctoral researchers Christina Cortez-Jugo and Matthew Faria. They are both working on nanoparticle interactions with cells but using different approaches.
