Drew Berry is a biomedical animator who specializes in revealing the drama behind the incredibly miniscule, yet operatic, lives of cells, molecules, and viruses. Check out a gallery of his work, and then start asking your questions about animation, microscopic drama, and anything else in the comments!

Berry makes his animations for the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Biomedical Medicine in Melbourne. He has received a Macarthur grant for his work, which has also been displayed at the MOMA, the Guggenheim, and the Centre Pompidou, and has focused on everything from the lifecycle of Malaria to an up-close look at a mouses's brain.

He'll be dropping in from Australia to answer questions about his work in the comments later in the day. So take a look at a gallery of some of his work — and then start asking your questions in the comments.
