Internationally-acclaimed XVIVO Scientific Animation will showcase their multi-media animations at the prestigious TEDMED 2012 at Washington, D.C.’s Kennedy Center April 10 – 13, 2012. By bringing together 1,000 of the most fascinating thinkers, speakers and doers from a wide array of medical and non-medical disciplines, TEDMED highlights the ideas
Dive into a brief tour to see milk’s properties up close and how its vital proteins and nutrients keep your bones strong and healthy.
“Milk is one of nature’s richest sources of nutrients, but even though it seems simple, it is a fascinating and complex product full of unique molecules and interactions,” states Ruud J.W. Schoemaker, Senior Researcher at FrieslandCampina. “XVIVO’s attention to detail and ability to create an engaging, easy to understand story behind this extraordinary product was key to bringing nature’s generous contribution to life.”
FrieslandCampina sought a way to reveal the complex building blocks that make up milk’s rich science story. XVIVO Scientific Animation was chosen to take on the challenge of translating complex processes into an animation that would be both visually compelling and informative.
The storyline focuses on the major components found in milk and key ways milk interacts with our bodies to provide nutrition.

Harvard University selected XVIVO to develop an animation that would take their cellular biology students on a journey through the microscopic world of a cell, illustrating mechanisms that allow a white blood cell to sense its surroundings and respond to an external stimulus. This award winning piece was the first topic in a series of animations XVIVO is creating for Harvard’s educational website BioVisions at Harvard.
Together Harvard University and XVIVO developed this 3D animation journey for Harvard’s undergraduate Molecular and Cellular Biology students about the microscopic world of mitochondria. The animation highlights the creation of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) – mobile molecules which store chemical energy derived from the breakdown of carbon-based food. ATP molecules act as a kind of currency, imparting chemical energy to power all the functional components of cellular activity. This piece is the second in a series of award winning animations XVIVO is creating for Harvard’s educational website BioVisions at Harvard. The first program, Inner Life of the Cell, received international acclaim and can be seen both on our website and the BioVisions site.

“People know more about how to operate the apps on their iPhone® or their flat-screen TV than they do take about the human body. Scientific animation can provide a visually compelling explanation that tells the story in a unique and easy-to-understand way. We hope these kinds of educational videos will teach people understand how the body functions and how to take better care of themselves.”
