Featured Image

The CMIF Featured Image represents a cross-sectioned tibialis anterior muscle derived from a mouse with muscular dystrophy. This image was captured using the Nikon A1R microscope by Dr. J. Spencer Hauck from the laboratory of Jill Rafael-Forney, PhD. This image demonstrates the infiltration of immune cells (green) into the muscle tissue (represented by red and blue staining).
