Nick DelRose is a Biology PhD student at New York University, studying root regeneration in plants.
A graduate of Carnegie Mellon University, he received his bachelors in Biology with focuses in Developmental and Cell biology, and minors in Chemistry and Fine Arts. His art and biology interests began at an early age when he became well-practiced in papier mâché and fascinated by the metamorphosis of caterpillar to butterfly.
He has continued interest in the intersection between art and biology, and in science communications through 3D illustration and animation.
Other projects are inspired largely by nature and the environment, and the (re)cycling, and (re)birth of the individual:
Much like the tissue and organ transformations in the chrysalis, or the cell fate changes seen in root regeneration, transitions in our own identities and truths are ongoing.
