Our New TILT Intern: Marissa Krebs, MSc Medical Art

We are super excited to introduce to you our newest addition to the TILT team, fellow medical artist Marissa Krebs.

Marissa hails from the land across the pond, good old U.S of A and has spent the last year studying for her Master’s in Medical Art at the University of Dundee. For the last couple of months Marissa has been working with us at TILT to produce some really cool Neuroanatomy graphics in the style of the London Underground Subway Map.

The brain child for this project was by one of our 4th year medical students, Alan Muhyaldeen. We’re pretty stoked that he came to us with this idea and incredibly happy with the collaborative effort of both Marissa and Alan. 

Check out the results of Marissa’s awesome visual work below:
