Posted by on April 20th, 2015

The MRC National Institute for Medical Research has celebrated its centenary in 2014. On 1st April 2015 NIMR ceased to exist, as it became part of the new Francis Crick Institute. To commemorate this event, I proposed to produce a textile artwork as a lasting memento of NIMR. Each current research lab, support section and[…]

Accelerated Frogs: Developmental Biology meets Particle Physics

Posted by on August 20th, 2014

I previously wrote a post about the development of a 4-D X-Ray Tomography technique for imaging early Xenopus embryos. Frog embryos are opaque due to their yolky composition and this has proved a challenge for traditional optical microscopy of events in the early stages of Xenopus embryo development. However Julian Moosmann, Ralf Hofmann and Jubin[…]

Outreach competition- the winners

Posted by on April 10th, 2014

Science outreach often involves using metaphors, where a real life object or situation is used to explain a complex scientific concept. Last December we launched an outreach competition, and we asked the Node readers to submit pairs of images: a photograph of a real life scene and an image of the scientific concept that it helps[…]

The covers of Development

Posted by on February 24th, 2014

Here at Development we are very proud of our covers. Over the years we have featured many beautiful images, showcasing different model organisms and techniques and including a few unusual choices! Most of these images were submitted by our authors, but some of the most recent ones were voted by you here on the Node.[…]
