Faculty at the Royal Society Summer Exhibition
This year’s Royal Society Summer exhibition featured Heart in Your Hands, an interactive exhibit that shows how a beating heart works, how the heart is influenced by disease and how computational modelling and medical imaging are providing new avenues for personalise and predictive medicine.
A collaborative effort between researchers at King’s, Rusty Squid, the Royal Academy of Engineering and the British Heart Foundation, Heart in Your Hands takes each participant on a journey of discovery, showing how the heart works and how research is improving our understanding of heart function in disease.
It is built around three interactive displays to provide a glimpse into heart research and gives a glimpse of the living heart through magnetic resonance images, how abnormal heart rhythm effects the beating of the human heart, and the basic biomechanics of the heart that provide its rhythmic beat.
