Primary Neurons in Culture
This image shows primary neurons in culture labeled with an antibody.
Human Breast Organoids
Pictured are human breast organoids, grown in 3D matrix (matrigel) and treated with DOX to induce cMYC expression.
Tracking Early Embryo Development
Researchers introduced nanodevices capable of measuring the “pushing and pulling” forces exerted within the cell.
A microscopic view of spiny pollen from Taraxacum officinale ssp. Ceratophorum, a native wild dandelion subspecies in the southern Rocky Mountains.
NIH-funded researchers restored sight in mice by turning skin cells into light-sensing eye cells. Three months after transplantation, immunofluorescence studies confirmed the survival of the chemically induced photoreceptor-like cells (green). They also show integration of the cells into the layers of the mouse retina.
Human Pancreatic Cancer Cells
This photomicrograph of a human pancreatic cancer tumor shows a mixture of different kinds of cells in close proximity to each other.
This image shows rabies-virus-labeled neurons (green) in the insula that send projections down to the stomach.
The Central Amygdala's Pain Center
Here can be seen neurons in the central amygdala of a mouse brain. Red, magenta and yellow cells (but not green or blue) are parts of a collection of neurons called the CeAga that has potent pain-suppression abilities.
Retinal Texture: An Alzheimer’s Biomarker?
This is a fluorescence image of retinal layers taken with a confocal microscope from wild, healthy mice (right) and mice genetically bred to show symptoms of Alzheimer's disease (left).
HIV-infected T Cell
This is a scanning electron microscopic image of a HIV (yellow) infected T cell (red).
