Tumor cells produce antigens which are captured by antigen presenting cells (APCs). The APCs that activate T-Cells are usually dendritic cells because T-Cells cannot recognize or respond to free or soluble antigens but they can recognize and respond to antigens that have been processed and presented by APC dendritic cells. Once T cells undergo activation they then proliferate and migrate to the tumor cells to release apoptosis-inducing proteins.
T Cell Activation and Tumor Attack was accepted into Images from Science 3. Images from Science 3 is a collaborative experiment that initially began in 2002 at Rochester Institute of Technology, and was organized to celebrate the production of extraordinary images featuring science. At its core mission, the project seeks to explore the interface of science, technology, art, design, and communication.
Images from Science 3 showcases 82 extraordinary images from 71 image makers from 15 countries around the world. This year, in addition to still images, the exhibition will incorporate moving images using video, computer generated images (CGI), animations and illustrations. The images were selected by an international panel of experts from around the world. The show will be on view at RIT City Art Space November 1-24, 2019, then travel to Johns Hopkins University. The exhibition is available for travel to other venues, and is accompanied by a catalogue published by RIT Press.
T Cell Activation and Tumor Attack was also honored with the Print Award of Excellence by the juried 2019 RX Club Show.
