Cristina Lo Celso at work.
When Dr Cristina Lo Celso won the prestigious Foulkes Foundation Medal at the end of 2017 for her work with Leukaemia, we realised we were short of images of this rising star in biomedical research.

This microscope room is great, the images on the wall in the background are from the microscope that Cristina is using, and also on the image library in the same folder as these images, the link is at the bottom of this post.
A closer shot of Cristina at work, the live image feed from the microscope is visible on the computer in the background.
This image whilst ethereally beautiful is leukaemia cells (red) distributed throughout the bone marrow cavity. Green are endothelial cells delimiting blood vessels, and blue are osteoblasts, bone making cells. Grey is collagen, one of the main components of bone, encasing the bone marrow.
The first time I walked into the Sir Alexander Fleming building atrium and saw into all the labs through the glass along the outside edges, I felt like I was in some kind of James Bond movie set.
