Detroit — Dr. Eva Feldman, Director of the Program for Neurology Research & Discovery, will be paired with multimedia artist John Corbin of Detroit in a unique fundraising event, An Evening of Art and Science, on May 22 at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit.

The event will unveil the works inspired by the pairing of 11 physician-researchers of the A. Alfred Taubman Medical Research Institute with noted artists from the Detroit area and beyond. For months, the artists have been meeting with their medical counterparts to discuss the creativity that abounds in their respective disciplines, and to gain ideas and inspiration from the medical research being conducted by these dedicated clinician-scientists from the University of Michigan.

The art pieces generated from those collaborations will be sold at auction and the proceeds used to fund the Taubman Emerging Scholars program, which helps early-career clinician-scientists establish their laboratories.
