The captions shows the dramatic encounter, in the liver, of our unsung heroes, the immune cells, and an invading parasite, the trypanosome. Each side bears an impressive arsenal of chemical weapons that will define at the end the unset, or not, of the Sleeping Sickness.

Immune surveillance by macrophages and monocytes is important for removing foreign invaders from the body, eliminating dead or damaged cells, and tissue homeostasis. Functional plasticity of macrophages enables them to respond to different stimuli, performing a variety of immune modulatory roles. During tumor development, macrophages are among the first immune cells to migrate into the tumor. Stimuli, including molecules secreted by cancer cells, polarize macrophages into various tumor-associated macrophage subpopulations. Factors secreted by macrophages include immunosuppressive cytokines, inflammatory chemokines, and phagocytosis molecules. Shown here are multiple macrophages (white) associating with a breast cancer cell (red). At the University of New Mexico, we are using nanotechnology to deliver agents that influence immune cells to actively participate in destroying tumor cells.

Copper chalcogenide nanostructure is a promising material for sensors, catalysis, and solar energy conversion. When we can control their assembled structure, the range of application can be explored. This is a scanning electron microscope (SEM) image of copper chalcogenide assembled from leaves to flowers.

The black plague is caused by the pathogen, Yersinia pestis. It only takes one Yersinia bacterium to cause an infection, which is deadly if not treated promptly. Immune cells (macrophages - purple/teal) were infected with Yersinia pestis (bright green), fixed, critically point dried, sputter coated with platinum, and imaged.
