Behind the Revolution in Cancer Therapy - Blender used for 3D animation


A Blender production on cancer therapy has made it to the renowned Scientific American publication!

Our studio, Alpha Tauri 3D Graphics worked with Scientific American Custom Media to create a short video about Dr. James Allison, an immunologist who cracked the immune T-cells "checkpoint brake" mechanism. Dr. Allison has been recently awarded Dr. Paul Janssen Award for Biomedical Research given annually by Johnson & Johnson.

We created the 3D sequences presenting the T-cells recognizing and destroying tumor cells and the molecular mechanism of action. For the close up sequences of exploding cancer cells, we used the ClothFX addon.

Alpha Tauri 3D Graphics is a growing biomedical animation studio that produces short videos for pharma and biotech companies. We use Blender exclusively for modeling, animation and most of VSE. A lot of models and amazing materials on our site are created by our talented 3D generalist - Robert Gutierrez, check out his ArtStation site:

Accreditation: This video was produced for Johnson & Johnson Innovation by Scientific American Custom Media, a division separate from the magazine's board of editors
