Hi! I’m Natalie.

As a biomedical communicator, I strive to create engaging and meaningful visualizations, while focusing on effective communication of scientific and medical information. I create visual solutions that translate knowledge and information for researchers, educators, pharmaceutical companies and other healthcare organizations within the industry. These visualizations may take the form of animations, illustrations or interactive media. My goal is to evoke curiosity, to educate, and to inspire others with my work.

 

I completed a Master’s degree in Biomedical Communications at the University of Toronto, and an undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering at the University of New Brunswick with a specialization in Biomedical Engineering – a unique background that has taught me to always seek alternative approaches when visual problem solving.

What is biomedical communication?

More commonly known as medical illustration, the field of visualizing science and medicine has expanded far beyond the traditional means of anatomical textbook illustration. It is an interdisciplinary field of professionals who collaborate with physicians, scientists and other specialists in order to create visual tools for knowledge translation.

 

The Master of Science in Biomedical Communications (BMC) at the University of Toronto is unique to Canada, and one of four accredited programs in the field. Please check out the Association of Medical Illustrators (AMI) for more information about the profession.
