Life Gets Under Our Skin
About our partners
The ESRC International Centre for Lifecourse Studies is based at University College London. The centre collects social and biometric data ‘right across life’ to gain a better understanding of the long term influences on health and wellbeing. Using information from longitudinal studies like the British Birth Cohort Studies, they combine data about people’s circumstances with what’s happening inside them, to look at how all that affects health over the course of life.
The film needed to show why the research evidence that comes from this type of science is so important. This short explainer video answers the questions; how does class, education and work affect our health and quality of life? And, if we could identify the ‘pinch points’ within people’s lives, how can we reduce the strain? In this film we use whiteboard animation to take a look at how life gets under our skin, to try to find ways to help people live happy healthy lives.
In this fascinating film for ICLS, we uncover how longitudinal data can be used to paint a clear and nuanced picture of how 'life gets under our skin’, how it affects what goes on inside us, and the potential that has for improving people’s lives.
E-Therapeutics are an Oxford, UK-based company with a unique and powerful computer-based drug discovery platform and a specialised approach to network biology. They wanted us to make them a video that describes how their network-driven drug discovery ("NDD") methodology allows them to discover new and better drugs in a more efficient and effective way.
American based health platform InTouch Health asked us to create an explainer video to show medical professionals the power of Enterprise 2.0, and the way it can bring them closer to their patients.
