The rapid advances currently being made in biomedical research are challenging the ways we view our bodies and the environment. Perceptions of Promise arose from a workshop that brought together internationally recognized artists and biomedical scholars and scientists to explore questions surrounding stem cell research, public perceptions of biotechnology, and the parallels and differences between creative and scientific practices. Perceptions of Promise includes artworks created in response to the workshop coupled with articles by world-renowned scholars and medical researchers.

It offers a compelling glimpse into a unique collaboration between scientists, scholars, and artists in a visually engaging publication that challenges the reader to consider the possibilities of biotechnology and stem cell research.Sean Caulfield is professor and Canada Research Chair of the Department of Art and Design at the University of Alberta. Curtis Gillespie is the author of four books including the memoir Playing Through and the novel Crown Shyness.
