"The University of Michigan unites scientists from many fields who work together to study organism development, function and disease. The goal of these studies is to design new and effective ways to treat disease and provide better understanding of ourselves as well as the world that surrounds us.

In the course of this research, scientists use special stains to add color to the otherwise transparent tissues. Microscopes then allow detailed observation. The tiny biological structures revealed in these images are beautiful; we share them with you here as a fascinating combination of art and science that we call BioArtography."

All proceeds from art sold go to travel funds for post doctoral fellows and graduate students. For more information, please visit the BioArtography website.
