Award-winning science communicator uses bioluminescence to explain how our body clock works

  • 25 May 2015

Online videos are the fasting growing source of content on the internet, and are becoming an increasingly popular format for communicating science. In this project, award-winning scientist Dr Siouxsie Wiles is working with professional graphic artist Luke Harris, and his team, to create a short animation using the New Zealand glow worm to introduce the public to exciting scientific research that exploits bioluminescence, in this case to study our circadian rhythm, otherwise known as our body clock.

This video was funded by the AMRF through a Sir Harcourt Caughey Award which was set up to honour the contribution of Sir Harcourt who was a former President of the AMRF and had a passion for research and education.
