T-cells At Work

I am a junior at the College of William & Mary, majoring in Neuroscience on the pre-medical track with a minor in Public Health, concentration in Wellness. I had the privilege of working with Jess and the Philip Lab to create cover art for a paper on how tumor antigens help determine T cell states and how they respond to immune checkpoints.

Artist Statement: 

I created a finger-painting using oil paint for my cover art. The yellow-orange cells depict the T cells as they attack the tumor cells, the blue, ultimately causing them to die, effectively helping in tumor regression.

I decided to do a finger painting because I felt that it added texture and dimension to the cells themselves, as if to make them more tangible. My hope is that it will serve as a visual aid to those reading the paper.
