Basic science can lead to advancements in medicine and science while creating inadvertently artful outcomes. This has been the case inside the Eggers Lab in the Department of Physiology at the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Tucson, where a team is working to improve diabetes diagnosis and care, especially as it relates to diabetic retinopathy, a common complication of diabetes that can lead to vision problems. The lab studies the effects of diabetes on retinas, which produce beautiful images when viewed under a high-powered microscope.
Learn more about these images shared by Andrea Wellington, assistant research scientist, and share images you've captured under the microscope. Images will be used to create a new photo gallery on Health Sciences Connect. Email images to HealthSciencesConnect@arizona.edu. Read the announcement about the call for submissions.
