ABOUT ME…

I’m Eliza Wolfson and I’m a scientific illustrator with a more than casual interest in microbiology. After finishing my BSc & PhD at the University of Edinburgh, I did a couple of post-docs at the Roslin Institute, Cambridge University and Bristol University. I worked on how E. coli and Salmonella manipulate our cells to live on or in them, but I was lucky enough to do this in places where I got to learn about a lot more than just my own research. I filled my head with pretty pictures of the molecular details of life and the universe, but not everything.

I have nearly 10 years of lab research experience, a lot of biological, biochemical and microbiological expertise, but I’ve been illustrating the whole time too. If you’re interested in commissioning any scientific diagrams, illustrations or some combination of illustration and design for scientific outreach, please contact me.
