Swan Ly

From elementary school doodles of swans, the Vietnamese translation of Nga “Swan” Ly’s first name, Swan’s interests were always split two-fold into art and medicine. Art Club and classes tempered her skills as an artist while a pre-medical major and positions as a lab assistant at the Lineberger Cancer Research Center and volunteer trainer at the American Red Cross updated her in the latest developments in medicine. Biomedical Visualization became the perfect blend of these two fields that enabled Swan to realize her desire to use art for education. Although she did not choose the profession that can directly cure ailments, Swan can help bring a deeper understanding of the body that may not be achieved through complex medical terminology but can be understood through biomedical visualization. Who knows, perhaps her old practice in drawing swans will aid a client interested in visualizing their biological processes in the future.
