The invisible body is a unique exhibition that opens on Wednesday 1 November at Sven-Harrys Art Museum in Stockholm. A number of researchers at Karolinska Institutet participate.

The exhibition shows and describes research in front of a different perspective, the visual - but which cannot be seen with the naked eye. The exhibition depicts normal and disease states through beautiful pictures, fascinating installations and inspirational films.

The exhibition wants to disclose medical research with the image as a starting point, telling stories about ongoing research.

In the exhibition there is also a historical perspective that includes, inter alia, Ramon y Cajal to Lennart Nilsson's contributions. In addition, there is a section about the technical development of visualization as part of medical research. A series of popular lectures will be held in connection with the exhibition.

The senior researcher Saida Hadjab at the Department of Neuroscience, Karolinska Institutet and scientific coordinator of the exhibition, has contributed to develop the project initiated by the Ragnar Söderberg Foundation in collaboration with the Sven-Harrys Art Museum, and in collaboration with a number of scientists, the Hagströmer Library and Lennart Nilsson Photography.
