Hello from Histopathology Lab pt. 2

January 12, 2010

This time of week offers a few precious moments to sit around a table with my colleagues, tune out for an hour, and look up stuff on line.

Histology is the study of tissues with a microscope. These are some examples of what the world looks like through a very powerful lens… the images were finalists in Nikon’s international photomicrography contest.

” Most microscopists have a streak of artist in them. It’s hard not to. You’re looking at things through a microscope that most people don’t see. The nascent artist in you sort of peeks its head up.” – James Hayden, Wistar Institute; Philly.
