“A transmission electron micrograph in which a MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cell was undergoing nuclear division. This image was captured during the study of intracellular stability of nanoGUMBOS.”

In the words of the judges, “The image is sharp and nicely defines the structure in a dividing cancer cell. It looks to be a valuable image for research, but it also captures a moment in the life cycle of a lethal cell.”
