Meredith Hoffman, M.S., is a New Hampshire-based professional medical illustrator and animator, and is driven by a desire improve science literacy and education through the use of compelling imagery and storytelling. With highly specialized training in graduate level human anatomy, cadaver dissection, biology, molecular pharmacology, molecular biology, pathophysiology, advanced digital illustration, 3D modeling, advanced 2D and 3D animation, graphic design, and the translation of medical imaging data into 2D and 3D visualizations, Meredith is an expert at combining artistry with scholarly scientific knowledge to solve visual communication problems. She has additional professional experience creating custom med-legal exhibits, editorial illustrations, animations, as well as teaching advanced 3D modeling at the graduate level.
Meredith received a Master of Science in Biomedical Visualization from the University of Illinois at Chicago, one of the only accredited graduate programs that train professional medical illustrators and animators. During her time at UIC, Meredith completed her research, visualizing the pathophysiology of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) for museum display, in collaboration with National Museum of Health and Medicine Chicago, where she created an animation and accompanying visuals to be incorporated into a museum exhibit on traumatic brain injuries. Meredith previously received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art and Design with a minor in Biology from the University of Michigan.
From an early age, she was instilled with a sense of curiosity with the natural world, and was constantly motivated to acquire new knowledge. Now, that same curiosity fuels her interest in nearly everything science and art-related, and to develop creative visual solutions for communicating complex scientific and medical information.
