Bioengineered Brain-like Cortical Tissues
A modular design of bioengineered brain-like cortical tissues. The approach consisted of a modular design of silk protein-based porous scaffolds dyed with food color. Each layer was seeded with different primary rat cortical neurons.
Changes in creatine levels detected using CEST MRI are mapped onto anatomical images of pig heart tissue. Panel B shows decreased creatine levels (blue) in an area that corresponds to tissue death, as indicated by the arrow.
Healing Venous Ulcers
A battery operated patch that is worn like a Band-Aid delivers therapeutic ultrasound to heal venous ulcers.
Structured Illumination Microscopy
The resolution difference between standard microscopy (top image) and structured illumination microscopy (SIM, bottom image) can be clearly seen. SIM microscopy has been reinvented by NIBIB researchers and allows real-time, 3-D super resolution imaging of small, rapidly moving structures such as blood cells.

NIBIB's 5th Anniversary Symposium
At NIBIB's 5th Anniversary Symposium, held in June 2007, NIBIB Director Dr. Roderic Pettigrew (l) chatted with special guest speaker Dr. Charles Townes, recipient of the 1964 Nobel Prize in Physics for his discovery of the laser.
The First NIBIB Landmark Achievement Award
In June 2007, NIBIB Director Dr. Roderic Pettigrew (l) presented the first NIBIB Landmark Achievement Award to M. Joan Dawson, wife of the late Dr. Paul Lauterbur. As a 2003 Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine, Dr. Lauterbur was recognized for his pioneering contributions to the development of magnetic resonance imaging.
