Cellules HeLa infectées par la bactérie "Listeria monocytogènes"

HeLa cancer cells infected with the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes, with actin comet tails, observed using a scanning electron microscope. Here, the HeLa cells are being used as a model to study how the biomechanical properties of cells contribute to various processes, including infection in particular.

Our work is guided by the way scientists question the world around them and we translate their research into images to help people to understand the world better and to awaken their curiosity and wonderment.
