Fluorcyte is a side project by Wilson Adams, a senior graduate student biomedical engineering researching advanced microscopy and neuroscience (Site | Twitter) at Vanderbilt University. When not doing research related stuff, he's usually watching sports, cycling, playing old gamecube games, making/drinking beer with friends, or hanging out with my awesome wife and two needy cats.
The site is an outlet for science-inspired graphic design, while trying to promote scientific awareness, open science practices, and work-life balance in the biomedical research community.
The mission of Fluorcyte is to partner with the STEAM workforce globally to accomplish the above goals in a sustainable manner. This involves bringing awareness to useful resources, aiding in brand and community building, investing parts of our profits from sales into maintaining open-source resources, and having some fun along the way.
So I'm trying out a new side project y'all. No idea if it'll work. But here it goes:— Wilson Adams (@WilsonAdams_) February 18, 2020
I'm launching a new design project and web store today called @fluorcyte - an apparel brand inspired by the microscopes we use daily to guide our research.https://t.co/mZ8QzWDYXx
By bringing visually stimulating science-inspired graphic design and apparel to the public, I believe we as a community can positively shift the public opinion on science, our workforce, and our perceived economic importance around the world.
