Matt is pumping iron!
The picture to the left is the molecule ferritin. It stores iron in our bodies. Matt wrote software and rendered this molecule after learning about the protein data bank RCSB from Aki, his scientist brother-in-law who builds medical microscopes.
Matt and many of his family members are hemachromatic. Their bodies do not dispose of iron, and instead store it where they can! To remedy this they donate blood regularly and have diet restrictions!
This ferritin render will be printed in full color sandstone. It will be our first design printed in multi-color!
