Tracking Cancer in 3-D, One Cell at a Time

3-D cancer image  

Hoping to track cancer as it spreads cell-by-cell through the body, Berkeley Lab researchers have developed a way to shape high-resolution microscopy images into three-dimensional renditions of tissue such as mammary ducts. The result is a microscopic look at the molecular and genetic underpinnings of cancer on a glandular scale. "In the future, we could analyze any three-dimensional tissue sample for its genetic and cellular activity," says Carlos Ortiz de Solorzano, a staff scientist in the Life Sciences Division. Full Story.

'Rebuilding' Team
Looking For Recruits

The San Francisco Rebuilding Together (formerly Christmas in April) program is looking for volunteers for an energy efficiency building team. Berkeley Lab employees have in the past participated in the program’s efforts to rehabilitate and repair homes for low-income, disabled or senior citizens. This year’s project, scheduled for a weekend in late April, will include energy efficiency measures. No experience is necessary. For details, contact Allan Chen in Environmental Energy Technologies, [email protected]
