MEDICAL ILLUSTRATOR (NIDDK)
Joe Samson, MA, is a medical illustrator and animator. He currently is working on a NIDDK-funded project to produce learning modules and case studies for use in undergraduate physiology courses. The materials he is creating focus on the application of important concepts in cardiovascular physiology, glucose homeostasis and renal physiology, and in engendering student interest in biomedical research. Developing the content for this project has expanded Joe’s capabilities in the development of realistic interactive 3D models and use of augmented reality in education.
Joe received a BFA from Fontbonne University in St. Louis, after which he earned an MA in medical and biological illustration from The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Department of Art as Applied to Medicine. Prior to coming to Georgia, he worked as a scientific visualizer at the VisualMD in New York City.
