RESOLUTION Beauty in Imagery

This image shows a human brain organoid (green) with nuclear DNA (blue), created from cells taken from a patient’s skin, reverted to stem cells and then coaxed to grow into neurons. By using a new method to graft the organoid into surrounding tissue (magenta), Abed AlFattah Mansour, a Salk postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Rusty Gage, and colleagues enabled the organoid’s developing neurons (red) to connect with blood vessels to receive nutrients and oxygen, a key improvement for organoid-based research.
