BIO faculty member wins Anatomical Society Best Image Prize 2013

Fgf10 lineaged-traced neuronsA picture sent in by Mohammad Hajihosseini has won the Anatomical Society Best Image Prize for 2013.

Image Title: Fgf10 lineaged-traced neurons.
The image shows a cluster of Postnatal day 12 cortical neurons expressing tomato-ds red, derived from single cortical progenitors that expressed the Fgf10 gene during brain development. The image shows evidence for limited neurogenesis in the cerebral cortex after birth. The image was captured from vibratome-sections of transgenic mice, using a Zeiss Apotomoe microscope.
