EMBO Reports Cover

Cerebrovascular endothelial cellsCongratulations to Elisabeth Kugler, PhD student in the Chico lab, whose work on transient spherical structures termed "kugeln" in the cranial vasculature of zebrafish has been featured on the front cover of EMBO Reports.

The cover shows endothelial cell protrusions termed kugeln in the head vasculature of transgenic zebrafish. Kugeln were visualized with transgenic reporter lines visualizing the endothelial cell membrane using light sheet fluorescence microscopy.
