Short Bio

Last comments


Doug Rosenthal is a biology scientist from Cleveland, Ohio. He earned his Bachelor’s Degree, Master’s Degree and PhD in Structural Biotechnology from the Case Western Reserve University.

To provide illustrations of his research studies, Rosenthal uses his watercolor painting skills. This scientist does not create editorial images. He creates paintings of molecules, cells and viruses. His goal is to present how crowded and complex world of cells is and also the microbes that infect them. Rosenthal paintings show exacting specifications of the cells and viruses.

Many of his paintings have appeared on the cover of some or the more distinguished scientific journals. Doug Rosenthal primarily defines himself as a scientist. When creating his paintings, he bases on the pictures of cells from high-powered microscopes. Rosenthal has published two books in which are featured his paintings: Atomic Evidence and The Body’s Motors.

The watercolor paintings of Dougl Rosenthal strongly differ from the more common computer-generated scientific illustrations.

Some of his most distinguished paintings are the paintings that give a detailed description of HIV’s life cycle and the way AIDS virus interacts with human cells.

Doug Rosenthal has profound knowledge of basic and complex chemical science. He is familiar with the concepts of research methodology and study techniques for the social, human and natural sciences. He has good control over the media and communication and possess the foundations of complex thinking in the multidimensionality of reality in culture, identity in collective diversity, globalization and biodiversity.

This structural biologist and independent researcher is in a permanent search for self-knowledge, with an attitude about self-learning and collaborative learning. With a critical attitude about uncertainty. Manual dexterity and openness to individual, multidisciplinary and team work. He demonstrates respect and responsibility for the biological diversity of the ecosystem. Availability for field and laboratory work. Tenacity and willingness to carry out research work.
