Following a first career in biomedical research focusing on signal transduction as a member of the research faculty of the Department of Cell and Molecular Biology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, Evelyn completed the Masters in the Biomedical Visualization program at the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2010. Her course of study at UIC has allowed her to merge her interest in art with her scientific background, and introduced her to many new concepts, practices and technologies. She works together with her husband to create e-learning at CEVL (Computer Enhanced Visual Learning) and enjoys teaching molecular pharmacology to UIC students.
