Image of the Month: February 2017

The EACR Image of the Month highlights both scientifically and visually stimulating cancer research images from EACR members.

We are pleased to announce our February 2017 Image of the Month winner: our congratulations go to Lucia Borriello and Yves DeClerck for sending this breath-taking image of cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAF) isolated from a patient with neuroblastoma.

We wish to thank our panel of reviewers for their help in selecting the winning image.

Are you an EACR member? Do you have a scientific image you’d like to share? Please visit our Image of the Month page to find out how to submit your image.

Winner: Cancer-Associated Fibroblasts (CAF) Isolated from Patient with Neuroblastoma.

This picture shows cancer-associated fibroblasts isolated from primary neuroblastoma tumour obtained at the time of surgical resection.  After digestion with collagenase and Dnase, cells were isolated by fluorescence-activated cell sorting and stained for CAF markers. This is a representative immunofluorescence image captured by confocal microscopy of CAF stained for Fibronectin (green) and counterstained with Phalloidin (red) and DAPI (blue). Scale bar = 50 μm.

Submitted by: Lucia Borriello, PhD and Yves DeClerck, MD in the Division of Haematology-Oncology, Children's Hospital Los Angeles, California, USA
