During your next virtual meeting, you can cell-ebrate science

medical images

You can use these scientific images as your background for virtual meetings. Download them below.

Whether from home, on the road or at the hospital’s campus in Memphis, Tennessee, science is non-stop at St. Jude.

Our scientists have shared some of their favorite images for you to use as a background on your next virtual video meeting.

In addition to the images, we have also included resources on how to change your virtual video meeting backgrounds. Discover more St. Jude science.

Nuclear Render

This 3D rendering illustrates the two chromatin subdomains (blue or copper colors) defined by the overlap of distinct chromatin proteins imaged by cryo-SR/EM. A thin section of electron microscopy data (gray) slices through the nucleus. Prepared by Daniel Stabley, PhD, Neuroimaging Laboratory image core manager in the Developmental Neurobiology Department.

Blood Vessel

This is a 3D rendering of the relationship between cerebellar neuronal progenitors (magenta) and developing blood vessels (cyan). Recent investigations have revealed oxygen’s importance in neuron development in newborn brains. Prepared and imaged by Niraj Trivedi, lab supervisor in the Developmental Neurobiology Department.

Neuron Glial Adhesion

This is a 3D rendering of a cerebellar granule neuron (green cell with blue nucleus) binding to a cerebellar glial cell (red). Neurons use glial cells as a path to migrate to a final position in developing brain circuits and must adhere, or stick, to glial cells to do so. Imaged and rendered by David Solecki, PhD, associate member in the Developmental Neurobiology Department.

Locus Coeruleus

This is an image of an RNAScope—an amplified in situ hybridization—analysis on a section of brain tissue that looks at mRNA expressed within the cells.

“It’s part of my project as I work toward the lab’s main goal of better understanding the locus coeruleus (LC),” says Alex Hughes, third-year graduate student in the St. Jude Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. “Since, overall, the LC helps regulate many different behaviors, techniques like these allow us to study different subpopulations of neurons within the LC to investigate how they may be responsible for more specific actions.”
