Image of the Week: Neurosphere sending out processes

This otherworldy image depicts a neurosphere composed of neural precursor cells as captured by a fluorescent microscope. The photo comes from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) Flickr photostream. According to the CIRM photo caption:

The cells, allowed to attach to a substrate, have begun to send out long processes that will eventually become the axons of the mature neurons.

This week, eight Stanford researchers received a total of $10.3 million in grants from CIRM to support basic research projects focused on stem cell science. The awards were announced as part of more than $38 million allocated to 28 projects in the state stem cell agency’s fourth round of “Basic Biology” grants. Stanford’s recipients of the Basic Biology grants are described in our release.
