Association of cancer and myeloid cells

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.

Phoretic Nano-swimmers

The Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) image is of ‘Nano Swimmers’ that are currently being investigated for potential use as novel drug carriers. These coiled structures are 25 microns in length, 5 microns in diameter and 300 nanometres in thickness. They are composed of a polymer with nickel/titanium coating and were fabricated by the Multi-Scale Robotics Laboratory, ETH Zurich and in collaboration with the NanoMedicine Laboratory, UCL School of Pharmacy. The swimmers were imaged under a FEI Quanta 200F Scanning Electron Microscope; firstly, the sample was given a 5nm gold coating in a Quorum Q150 Sputter coater and imaged at 5KV. In addition a tilt angle of 65 degrees enhanced their full structure, high resolution digital images were captured and imported into photoshop, where they were artistically manipulated and coloured by Ms Annie Cavanagh.
