Cellular Polarity

Cellular Polarity. Conceptual illustration of cell polarity research and its medical implications.

Illustration for ‘Cellular Polarity: from mechanisms to disease’. The illustration features a progression from simple cells on the left hand side to a hand holding medicines on the right. The illustration shows the progression from simple polarised cells undergoing mitosis, computational analysis of those cells, using the analysis data to predict the overall polarity of the cell, and finally the potential medical applications of this data. This image was used by the Royal Society for the 2013 symposium of the same name.
