The Hunt

From CambridgeUniversity

This is not your everyday video and you probably won’t be able to take it unless you were a researcher at Cambridge University. There is a war in our body and this video shows a killer T cell of the immune system attacking a cancer cell. T cells are just 10 microns in length: approximately one-tenth the width of a human hair.

The original footage shown was made by Alex Ritter, a PhD student on the NIH-OxCam programme, in the laboratory of Professor Gillian Griffiths at the Cambridge Institute for Medical Research and the Department of Medicine of the Clinical School of the University of Cambridge. The images were acquired using an Andor Revolution spinning disk system with an Olympus microscope.
