3D-bioprinted Tumour

After some very strong entries to our Research is Beautiful campaign – we have our June winner!


Our Research is beautiful image campaign highlights images that showcase your research – from your science, to the people in your lab and everything that surrounds it.

Congratulations to Michaela Macdonald from Carcinotech Ltd for the winning image of the past month. Her picture captures a 3D-bioprinted living tumour, derived from donor glioblastoma tissue. Blue hues highlight cell nuclei, while pink and turquoise reveal cancer-associated fibroblasts.
