Seasonal Stem Cells

We may all be back to work with the end of year celebrations behind us, but Catarina Moura and her colleagues put us back in the cheery spirit by using laser-based imaging techniques to create this festive micrograph. The research team from the University of Southampton is investigating the potential to apply non-linear imaging techniques to characterize bone stem cells as a new means to improve diagnostics in bone/cartilage repair and regeneration strategies. Here, they have grown cartilage-like tissue in the lab using bone stem cells (collagen fibers in green and fat deposits in red).
