A New Hope for Tuberculosis - Global Health Institute, EPFL (2010)
BTZ is a novel drug jointly discovered by the Global Health Institute at EPFL that kills Tuberculosis bacteria. It attacks the building process of the cell walls of these very drug resistant bacteria. Done for Prof. Stewart Cole and his team, Laboratory of Microbial Pathogenesis, Global Health Institute (GHI), EPFL.
Technology: Our in-house ray tracing and simulation engine BioInspire (written from scratch in C/C++) was used to create models, animations, renderings and special effects. Music was specially composed for the movie.
