Beautiful images from University of Texas at Austin labs
How do you track the activities of cells in living things? These amazing nanodroplets, filled with metals with magnetic properties and compounds containing fluorine, make it possible. Using these with magnetic resonance imaging and the only stable isotope of fluorine, assistant professor of chemistry Emily Que at The University of Texas at Austin and her team of researchers can see immune cells and monitor cancer therapy in animals. Chemistry graduate students Tyler King and Hongyu Guo helped prepare the materials and develop this image in the Microscopy and Imaging Facility at UT’s Center for Biomedical Research Support.
