Memphis on Cover of Scientific Journal



It is rare for a scientific journal to put the Memphis skyline on its cover, but here it is.

Cancer Cell this week has a major paper from St. Jude Children's Research Hospital on brain tumor research, and the authors sent in a photo of Memphis with an image of tumor cells that appear as either the moon or fireworks over the skyline.

Here's the technical information and photo credit: The cover shows a red neurosphere of the MYC-subgroup medulloblastoma representing the moon over the lit Memphis Bridge on the Mississippi and the Memphis downtown skyline. Image from Betsy Williford (Department of Biomedical Communications, St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital) and Martine F. Roussel. The photo was taken by Ann-Margaret Hedges.
