Project Summary

I worked with the primary physician scientists for this project. Their work was accepted to the journal and they were asked to generate something unique for the cover that depicted their work.

The image shows “the independent and synergistic effect of sound waves (curved white lines) and mesenchymal stem cells (which are arriving at the kidney via its blood supply) in stimulating kidney regeneration following injury. The small yellow circles represent the release of growth/regeneration-promoting factors following treatment.”

Biggest Challenge:

The challenge with this illustration was showing the complex vasculature and its association with the renal lobes. This vasculature is important to the therapy in that the physicians can use the vasculature to deliver the treatment and use the focused sound waves to activate the treatment, hence minimizing systemic exposure to treatment.
