This week, the streets of Ann Arbor will fill with art lovers, for the annual Ann Arbor Art Fair. But at one booth down on East University Avenue, the “artists” have day jobs: they are research scientists. And the images they create aren’t just beautiful – they come from laboratory studies that might save lives.
"Gastric Mosaic" by U-M Medical School graduate student Gail Gifford shows a portion of mouse stomach where gastric gland cells produce acid and mucus, and digest proteins. It's one of the new images chosen for sale in 2014 through the BioArtography competition.
