Graduate student designs journal cover
The publication „Imaging of cytotoxic antiviral immunity while considering the 3R principle of animal research” in the Journal of Molecular Medicine by our graduate student Lucas Otto was chosen for the cover picture in the April issue 2018. Shown is a look into the tibial bone marrow of a living Friend retrovirus infected mouse during an ongoing adaptive immune response. Virus-specific CD8+ T cells (red) and their migration tracks (yellow lines) are depicted together with the bone surface (white) and the blood vessels (cyan). Besides the imaging aspect, the paper also offers a valuable cell transfer method that reduces the number of donor animals substantially.
