This is a fluorescence microscopy image of a section from a mouse mammary tumor, which has formed a heart-like shape. The red color labels the active form of a protein; as cancer develops the levels of this protein may increase. The image was produced by scientists studying the progression of breast cancer and won the 2017 BMC “Research in Progress” photo competition.
