Liposomes image is Pinacoteca winner for April

An image from Xavier Fernandez-Busquets’ Nanomalaria joint unit has been selected as Image of the Month for April 2017 for the Pinacoteca de la Ciencia, a competition run by the Spanish Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (SEBBM).

The cryo-transmission electron microscope image of liposomes being assayed for the encapsulation of drugs targeted to red blood cells infected by the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum was a result of Xavier’s ongoing collaboration with artist Marc Cirera.

SEBBM’s Pinacoteca de la Ciencia, sponsored by Eppendorf, showcases the best photos sent by the society’s partners month by month.
