Project Description

The intent of this poster was to educate a graduate level audience on the medical applications of the Israeli Death Stalker’s venom. A key concept that this poster illustrates is the way in which an isolated chlorotoxin can be used to fluoresce malignant brain tissue. By way of color association and composition structure, this poster flows the eye through the chlorotoxin’s process of illumination. This material is a new discovery in the field of medicine and this poster seeks to spread the availability of this knowledge.
