    Anko de Graaff is microscopy manager at the Hubrecht Institute in Utrecht, The Netherlands. He is head of the Hubrecht Imaging Center which facilitates advanced microscopy at this institute. During his career as a microscopist he worked at Leiden University, Wageningen University and Utrecht University and was always fascinated by the beautiful images you can acquire with a microscope.
  • Marcel Fens

    Marcel Fens is a postdoctoral researcher at Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute. Currently, and as a PhD student and post-doc in Utrecht, he studies red blood cell interactions with the endothelium. He loves how images can replace thousands of words and numbers, and at the same time be amazingly beautiful.
  • Stephan Huveneers

    Stephan Huveneers recently initiated a research group at Sanquin Research (Amsterdam, the Netherlands) to explore the role of cell adhesion dynamics in the endothelium of blood vessels and in stem cells of the bone marrow. Live fluorescence microscopy is one of the key approaches used in his research.
  • Aniek Janssen

    Aniek Janssen has spend most of her PhD in the lab of Dr. Rene Medema watching beautiful images of dividing cells. What caught her eye the most were the many mistakes cancer cells make during this process. She has been studying the consequences of these division errors for the development of cancer. Currently she is working at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab in Berkeley, California.
  • Wouter Karthaus

    My interest as a scientist is elucidating the mechanisms of chemotherapy resistance in prostate cancer. I do this by studying normal prostate biology and prostate cancer biology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer City in New York. My favorite tool: Prostate organoids, not only great for research but also very photogenic.
  • Wouter Koole

    Wouter was trained during his masters in the lab of prof. dr. Plasterk at the Hubrecht Institute (Netherlands) and in the lab of prof. dr. R. Nusse at Stanford University (USA). He obtained his Phd in the lab of Prof. dr. M. Tijsterman at Leiden University Medical Centre (Netherlands) where he worked with various model organisms such as the nematode C. elegans and the zebrafish Danio rerio. A selection of images he made during his Phd are placed in this gallery. Wouter is currently working as a post doctoral fellow at Erasmus MC (Rotterdam, Netherlands).
  • Daniel Kopinke

    Daniel Kopinke is a developmental biologists and mouse geneticist at the University of California, San Francisco where he is doing a postdoc. As a student at the University of Kiel and then at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, he worked with cnidaria, zebrafish, planarian and mice. He became enchanted by the beauty of developing embryos. His current work focuses on skeletal muscle regeneration and adipose biology.
  • Alexander Leemans

    Alexander Leemans is a physicist who received his Ph.D. in 2006 at the University of Antwerp, Belgium. From 2007 to 2009, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Center (CUBRIC), Cardiff University, Wales, United Kingdom. In 2009, he joined the Image Sciences Institute (ISI), University Medical Center Utrecht, the Netherlands, where he currently holds a tenured faculty position as Associate Professor.
  • Rene Overmeer

    Rene Overmeer is a post-doc at the UMC Utrecht specialized in organoid culture and confocal microscopy.
  • Jonne Raaijmakers

    Jonne Raaijmakers is a PhD student in the lab of Rene Medema at the Dutch Cancer Institute in the Netherlands. She is fascinated by the dynamic process of cell division and uses different microscopic techniques to study this beautiful process in human cells.

  • Arnout Schepers

    Arnout Schepers is one of the founders of pArt of Science. He wants to show the world how beautiful science can be. The work in his gallery was obtained during his PhD research at the Hubrecht institute in the lab of prof. dr. Hans Clevers. He is now a post-doctoral fellow at the Koch Institute at MIT, where he's trying to develop a 'liver on a chip' model for cancer research.
  • Hugo Snippert

    Hugo Snippert is a developmental biologist who truly believes that pictures say more than thousand words. During his PhD in the lab of Prof. Dr. Hans Clevers in the Hubrecht Institute, he created, among others, the multicolor Confetti mouse to capture stem cell behavior. Currently, he is employed by the University Medical Center Utrecht where he performs advanced imaging on mini-organs that he grows in dishes.
  • Roy van Heesbeen
