Hunter O'Reilly is both an internationally shown artist and an experienced geneticist.  She reinterprets science as art through the creation of living artworks, abstractions, digital art and installations confronting issues related to biotechnology in our culture.  She holds a Ph.D. and Masters degree in Genetics from the University of Wisconsin–Madison, and a bachelors of science from the University of California-Berkeley.  She created a course, Biology through Art, where students have the opportunity to create innovative artworks in a biology laboratory.  Dr. O'Reilly teaches both biology and art at Loyola University Chicago.  Most recently she is creating a series of Living Drawings with bioluminescent bacteria. These Living Drawings depict the cycle of life and death calling attention to our own mortality and explore the possibilities of new life forms created through genetic engineering.  The cover of the April 2004 issue of Nature Genetics featured one of these Living Drawings. http://www.artbyhunter.com/
Joe Davis was a sculptor and bike mechanic in Mississippi before he walked into M.I.T. uninvited in 1982 and walked out (the same day) as a research fellow in visual studies. However, intent on also realizing the scientific side of his nature, Davis was invited in 1992 to become a research associate in the laboratory of famed biophysicist Alexander Rich, who discovered "left-handed" DNA. When he is not creating conceptual art in synthetic DNA or envisioning wild projects for NASA, Davis is on somewhat of a personal crusade to bring more artists into the fold of modern biology. Davis is also an accomplished artist in the traditional sense. He designed and executed pedestrian lights and a sculpture that form the center of a public art/fountain complex at Kendall Square in Cambridge, MA (artists Joan Brigham and Otto Piene also contributed to that project).
Helen Donis-Keller combines her interests in art and science, believing that each field informs the other in significant ways.

More recently she was Professor of Surgery and Director of the Division of Human Molecular Genetics with joint appointments as Professor of Genetics and Professor of Genetics in Psychiatry at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. She has also maintained an interest in the ethical implications of genetic research, serving on an Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences Committee on Assessing Genetic Risks. She also founded a course at Washington University on Ethics and Research Science. Dr. Donis-Keller has authored more than 150 publications in science. She received a B.Sc. in Natural Science and an Honours B.Sc. in Biology from Lakehead University in Ontario, Canada, a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Harvard University, in Cambridge.
