The UCL Centre for Advanced Biomedical Imaging (CABI), a new multidisciplinary research centre for experimental biomedical imaging, was officially opened by the Provost and President of UCL, Malcolm Grant.

Discussing work with UCL Provost, Malcolm Grant

As part of this opening, Laura Cinti presented her Nanomagnetic Plants publicly for the first time. These plants show slight movement when an external magnet is positioned close to them. Her experimental art practice was developed in an interdisciplinary capacity with the centre.
