(Nanowerk News) Hybrid Medical Animation announced today that it took home two platinum best of show and two gold at this year’s Aurora Awards. This is the second consecutive year the Minneapolis-based animation studio has been given the top honor.
Three of four Auroras this year came from the “Use of Special Effects/ Animation” category. The platinum winner from this category, “Rexin-G Mechanism of Action”, was created for Epeius Biotechnologies Corporation. The animation depicts the molecular mechanisms of its revolutionary Rexin-G cancer therapy.

Epeius Biotechnologies Corporation的執行長Frederick Hall博士表示，"我們的頂尖分子生物學家也都十分驚嘆這麼逼真的動畫，Hybrid Medical Animation這家公司所製作的動畫藝術地整合了腫瘤與目標及基因與運送的概念”
“Our top molecular biologists were awed by the striking realism and artful flow of the tumor-targeting and gene-delivery themes that Hybrid orchestrated,” said Epeius president, Dr. Frederick Hall.
Rexin-G is the world's first tumor-targeted nanomedicine, a targeted gene delivery system that seeks out and destroys cancers that have spread throughout the body. Rexin-G has demonstrated efficacy against a broad spectrum of tumors where chemotherapy and other treatments have failed.
“The client’s hands off approach really allowed us to innovate on the Rexin-G project,” said Jeffrey Johnson, founder and creative director for Hybrid. “We were allowed the freedom to take a very complex science concept and transform it into a visually compelling story of how this revolutionary cancer drug actually works.”
Hybrid Medical Animation抱走第二項白金獎項為名為"自我推銷/真實情境模擬"類別，為他們在2006年推銷的真實生物模擬影片。另外其中一項金質獎項頒給了替 Pfizer Global Pharmaceuticals公司所製作的動畫，最後一個則是由"禽流感病毒散佈"的動畫奪走。
Hybrid took home a second platinum statue in the “Self Promotion/Demo Reel” category for their 2006 promotional reel. One gold Aurora went for an animation produced for Pfizer Global Pharmaceuticals, while the other was awarded for an awareness-building animation on the spread of avian flu.
