To create comprehensive reference maps of all human cells—the fundamental units of life—as a basis for both understanding human health and diagnosing, monitoring, and treating disease.
Anna Macdonald’s work with One Cell at a Time, part of HCA Public Engagement, focuses on the process of matching. She is really interested in finding out more about the methods HCA researchers use to generate or identify pattern. Anna would really like to meet with data analysts, and with people receiving that data, to identify questions and areas of research.
Anna’s project ‘A Way of Doing Things’ looks at the fascinating process of seeing yourself back in another and finding connection. She is exploring pattern as a way of joining in, as a way of forming community, and a way of establishing normative ways of being.
The intention of this work long-term is to apply science-based data processing methods in social contexts working with data gathered from participatory arts-based research.
