Title: Spatial Heterogeneity in the Tumor Microenvironment
Description: The microenvironment that surrounds a tumor plays a crucial role in helping cancer to grow and evade destruction. This image of a mouse model for HER2-positive breast cancer uses a novel imaging technique called transparent tumor tomography that three-dimensionally visualizes the tumor microenvironment at a single cell resolution. HER2 (green), Ki-67 (red), PD-L1 (purple), immune cells (yellow), and endothelial cells (cyan).
