Giuseppe Lo Schiavo is an award-winning visual artist based between London and Milan. His research is aiming to create a bridge between art and science.

The artist will start research on art and synthetic biology with the support of Cardiff University, Zurich University of Applied Science, the University of Trento and the Museum of Science MUSE.
