Work / Animation / The Inner Life of the Cell
In 2006, Harvard University teamed up with XVIVO to develop an animation that would take their cellular biology students on a journey through the microscopic world of a cell.
The Inner Life of the Cell follows a white blood cell’s movement along the endothelium and its response to an external stimulus — a process known as leukocyte extravasation. This widely-acclaimed piece is the first in a series of animations XVIVO has created for Harvard’s BioVisions.
The second installment, titled Powering the Cell: Mitochondria, follows the mechanism of ATP production along the inner mitochondrial membrane.
In 2013, we released The Inner Life of the Cell: Protein Packing, which illustrates the crowded molecular environment present in cells.
Narrated versions are available on the BioVisions website.

XVIVO really came through for us when we were putting together animations for the Health gallery of the Connecticut Science Center. The beating heart is gorgeous! They are true experts and we really enjoyed collaborating with them.
