Osteoblast by Brajith Srigengan, Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge

The ZEISS SEM prize in the 2013 ZEISS Photo Competition was awarded to Brajith Srigengan for his image of an osteoblast (bone cell) branching across two steel fibres. It was photographed as part of a research project focusing on the effect that coating a hip implant with fibrin, a protein gel, has on the body’s inflammation process. A 3D steel fibre network was used as an in-vitro design of the implant. The images were then used to provide a qualitative analysis of the response. – See more at: www.cam.ac.uk/research/news/inspiring-images-engineering-… www.zeiss.com/sem
