Department – Chemistry & Biochemistry (Graduate Student) –
Research Field – Cancer research –
How image was captured – Microscope –

Research Impact & Significance – My research focuses on studying the biochemical mechanisms of cancer-immune system interactions. This picture is for an aggressive prostate cancer cell line (ARCaP) taken using a microscope (20X). I decided to color this picture and make it look like a garden full of life because only when we totally understand how cancer functions we can improve the current treatment options. P.S. Mr. Froggy at the bottom is says “Hi!”
