“Celldance” Selections

Highlights from the American Society for Cell Biology’s 2016 video grant competition

By | December 5, 2016

As imaging technologies improve, biologists are able to visualize cellular components in greater detail than ever before. The following videos from American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) member labs highlight how non-cell biologists can now enjoy the spoils of enhanced imaging capabilities. For its 2016 “Celldance” competition, the ASCB Public Information Committee chose to support the production of three videos, presented here in no particular order.

“Cell Division: Live & Up Close”
Daniela Cimini, Virginia Tech 

“The Big Squeeze: What Dendritic Cells Do to Fight Infection” 
Matthieu Piel, Institut Curie & Institut Pierre-Gilles des Gennes

“Discovery Inside Living Cells in Multicellular Organisms” 
Robert Weigert, Center for Cancer Research, National Cancer Institute & National Institute of Dental & Craniofacial Research
