JEM

A very cool report published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine out of UCSF provides dazzling images and videos of immune cells in action! More info and abstract here at Pubmed, and links to actual video on Facebook here. Gif credit: CauseScience.

The immune system in action! This 11-second video shows how white blood cells (eosinophils) attack a parasitic worm in 80 mins.
Watch more fascinating videos from Steven Rosen and colleagues [UC San Francisco (UCSF)] in their recent JEM study on the immune response to parasites.

Also, shout out to the nematode C elegans! But for future reference, C elegans are not a parasitic worm in humans. Very cool to see an academic journal spreading cool science images on social media! Way to go JEM!!
