The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research is Australia’s oldest medical research institute, and is internationally recognised as a leader in scientific research, particularly in cancer, immunology and infectious disease research.
This discovery timeline represents the 100 year history of the institute’s discoveries, people, activities and achievements.
By communicating these feats we hope to inspire and encourage medical research, as well as show the impact and outcomes that the institute’s research has had on the Australian and international community.
A main objective is to fully immerse the user in the content so they discover a world of intertwined discoveries and scientific breakthroughs. The project allows people to explore the discoveries through a number of pathways and then lose themselves in the content by following one story across time or discovering a related breakthroughs and pursuing their own journey.
Walter and Eliza have some truly incredible imagery and a unique, bespoke interface was created to exhibit these as full screen imagery. This encouraged people to delve deeper into exploration.
The resulting project is an immersive and engaging site across Desktop, Tablet and Mobile devices.
While not only maintaining Australian Governments accessibility (AA) requirements, we've created a truly engaging and responsive site that will grow and adapt over time, and give real insight into the discoveries made by Walter & Eliza Hall Institute.
