The Art of Personalized Medicine

Date: Sunday, September 27, 2015

A new art exhibit entitled “Medicine and Medication in Contemporary Art,” is on display in the lobby of the new Nancy and Stephen Grand Israel National Center for Personalized Medicine on campus. Launched on July 1, the exhibit includes the works of artists from Israel and England. Shown here (top right) is a painting by Eric Bokobza, who trained as a pharmacist and who focuses on chemical formulas for drugs, which he then ties to a physical place: Jerusalem. Artist Iris Irisya Kovalio’s painting appears on the packaging of drug Algolysin Forte.
