Meet the Lab Director
Lisa Carrie Goldberg is the founder and Lab Director of Action Potential Lab. She designed the lab as a community space for the merging of material matter found in both science and art, as a way to enhance Toronto’s creative potential. Lisa has completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interrelated Media at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, learning techniques in sculpture, weaving, film and photography. She has a Masters of Science in Biological Arts from SymbioticA, a research facility dedicated to art, technology and the life sciences at The University of Western Australia (the only university program of its kind in the world). It was here that Lisa got to experience what it meant to do research at the intersection of science and art, by studying topics in sleep science, tissue culture, physiology and molecular biology. As a lifelong academic, she has a certificate in Graphic Design and a Certificate in Teaching and has taught grades K-5, grades 6-8 and post-secondary art education, in the public and private school systems, in university settings and in independent art schools.
