Drew Berry (born 1970 in the United States) is a biomedical animator at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research in Melbourne, Australia. His scientifically accurate and aesthetically rich visualizations are elucidating cellular and molecular processes for a wide range of audiences. His animations have been shown in exhibitions, multimedia programs and television shows, and have received international recognition including an Emmy (2005) and a BAFTA Award (2004).
I create biomedical animations that combine cinema and science to reveal the microscopic worlds inside our bodies.
My career began in cell biology and microscopy at The University of Melbourne. I have used this knowledge to bring a rigorous scientific approach to every topic, immersing myself in relevant research and current data to ensure the frontier of human discovery is authentically reconstructed.
Since 1995, I have worked as a biomedical animator at the institute. My animations have exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum, Museum of Modern Art, the Royal Institute of Great Britain and the University of Geneva
