The Health Research Board has brought together a ‘curious’ collection of scientific images to capture people’s imagination and showcase the magic of science that is rarely seen outside of research groups. Images ranging from the microscopic (burst blood vessels, MRSA, dental plaque) to the enormous (CERN Large Hadron Collider) can be seen on Dublin city buildings on Pearse Street and Baggot Street Bridge. Each image has a story behind it that not only explains the science but connects you to the image.
