Dendritic cell revealed 
Artistic rendering of the surface of a human dendritic cell illustrating the unexpected discovery of sheet-like processes that fold back onto the membrane surface. When exposed to HIV, these sheets entrap viruses in the vicinity and focus them to contact zones with T-cells targeted for infection. These studies were carried out using ion abrasion scanning electron microscopy, a new technology we have been developing and applying for 3D cellular imaging.
