Bringing research to life through animation
We’ve created hundreds of research-driven animations. View them here:
Health & Medicine
AMELIE (Anchored Muscle cELls for IncontinencE) is a 5-year H2020 EU-funded research project. The consortium proposes a novel regenerative intervention using autologous skeletal muscle derived cells (ASMDC) to restore the function of the sphincter muscle. Scientists will attach ASMDC to implantable microcarriers, to improve cell delivery and engraftment in patients with faecal incontinence. This strategy is expected to improve cell viability and increase the likelihood of muscle regeneration, contributing to improved continence.
This animation explores the question whether some aspects of ageism are really hidden ableism.

“Cos4Cloud addresses some of the biggest challenges of citizen science: difficulties integrating and exchanging data among different projects and apps; lack of technological capacity, and significant costs for ensuring sustainability… How? By co-designing from the bottom-up ten technological services that will help citizen observatories increase the observations’ credibility so that the academic, political, and social fields trust to use them. The Cos4Cloud project relies on the participation of a network of 9 citizen observatories and Do it Yourself (DIY) initiatives focused on biodiversity and the environmental monitoring that will test the services with their users. Once ready, the services will be uploaded to the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).
You also can contribute to co-design and test these services by joining the cos4Cloud community!”

“Procalcitonin helps to overcome challenges in COVID-19 patient management:
– PCT is a useful tool to screen COVID-19 patients for bacterial co-infections
– PCT levels help to differentiate levels of risk for mortality
– PCT test results can be used to aid antibiotic treatment decisions
Based on the evolving data, procalcitonin has been included in international, national and hospital guidelines and recommendations for management of COVID-19 patients.”

“Diagnosis and treatment options for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) have traditionally addressed the clinical symptoms of the disease, including constipation, diarrhea, and abdominal pain.
However, new understanding of the pathophysiology of IBS promises to yield new diagnostic techniques and therapies to supplement symptom-based approaches.

Education & Training
After Hurricane Katrina, most public schools in New Orleans were converted to independently-run charter schools. Currently, information on the limited resource’s schools purchase to serve students with special characteristics, such as students with disabilities and English Language Learners, is not centrally collected. This makes it difficult to understand what support services are needed, their true cost and how schools can maximize their limited resources to meet the needs of the most vulnerable students.
The Tree pathology lab at University of Birmingham (UOB) and Birmingham Institute of Forest Research, Birmingham, is headed by Professor Rob Jackson. This animation aims to provide a glimpse into the scientific background behind the work that we do in the Jackson lab and to highlight the importance of studying bacteriophage to control plant diseases caused by bacteria.
Health & Medicine
Fibrils are implicated in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Using gold nanoparticles to ‘freeze’ peptides at the point they start to form fibrils can give us valuable insight into how these damaging particles form. This study was conducted at the undergraduate institution, State University of New York – Geneseo College, with a very limited research budget. In order to conduct a good quality study, the method was carefully designed and a good amount of time spent on the data analyses, combining a mathematical approach with chemical knowledge. Using gold nanoparticles allowed the team to demonstrate how proteins bond to each other.
New to animation? It can be hard to know where to start. We’ve explained the differences between the services we offer below.
We work with academic institutes, commercial enterprises, non-profit organisations, clinical bodies, e-learning developers and government institutions.

Science Animated communicates complex research through compelling content. We offer a complete service, from initial consultation, through to script writing, animation and promotion of the finalised content. Not only do we create beautiful animations to explain your work – we ensure they are watched by the audience you want to target. Each project is managed by one of our experienced editors, to ensure a seamless and time-effective delivery.
