It provides the opportunity for artists and medical artists to visit labs and dissection rooms. Pascale was an external examiner for the medical art course at The Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification, University of Dundee, and is President of AEIMS (Association Europeenes des Illustrateurs Medicaux et Scientifiques). Pascale currently lives and works in London as a self-employed artist.
