Meet the biomedical illustrator

Christine Cote uses art and science to help break down complex information into approachable visuals. As an artistic scientist, she maintains a focus on visualizing anatomy, biology, and pathology through digital illustration, animations, and 3D models.  

Christine received her Bachelors in Liberal Arts from Chester College of New England in 2012. In 2016 she received her MS in Biomedical Visualization Masters of Science Program at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Her master's thesis project was creating an eBook to help visualize the genetic reassortment and replication of the avian influenza A virus.

Now Christine is currently a Graduate Assistant at the University of Georgia College of Veterinary in hopes to complete a Comparative Anatomy Certificate Program in 2017. After that, she is eager to see where the next adventure will take her, and looks forward to a long and fulfilling career in medical illustration. 

Christine's work has been presented at the Mid America Orthopaedic Association (MAOA), the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Annual Meeting (AAOS), the Northwestern Public Health Review, and the Monthly Spine Research Seminar at Rush University, Chicago. She also co-designed the cover of the UIC Bioengineering Student Journal with one of her classmates and has redesigned a logo for Inside Information Radiology.  She is eager to learn techniques and tricks in ZBrush, and always works to hone her technical skills. That said, she never forgets her artistic roots, and always enjoys drawing and painting.
