BBM 2024 Poster

The micrograph featured on the BBM poster was taken by Andrea Vettiger (back when he was a postdoc in Tom Bernhardt’s lab at Harvard Medical School; now, an assistant professor at the University of Lausanne. The image shows a composite of the outer membrane protein Pal (magenta) and bacterial cytoskeletal element MreB (white) in Escherichia coli. The image was acquired using a combination of structured illumination and total internal reflection microscopy. MreB displacement was analyzed by TrackMate (colors).

The poster was designed by Katherine Suarez, a BBM organizing committee member and graduate student at Harvard Medical School.
