‘How to biohack your cells to fight cancer’
TED Ed & UCL
An absolutely stunning animated YouTube video explaining a new cancer treatment (CAR T Cell therapy).
Rather than the standard, clinical, emotionless 3D graphics used in many biomedical videos, we created an immersive, manga-inspired, cyber-punk world of biohacking.
We approached TED Ed to see if they would be interested in publishing it, they were incredibly impressed and decided to upload it - the first externally produced video TED Ed have taken.
It currently has over 500k views and very positive comments.
