The University of Michigan unites scientists from many ﬁelds who work together to study organism development, function and disease. The goal of these studies is to design new and effective ways to treat disease and provide better understanding of ourselves as well as the world that surrounds us.
In the course of this research, scientists use special stains to add color to the otherwise transparent tissues. Microscopes then allow detailed observation. The tiny biological structures revealed in these images are beautiful; we share them with you here as a fascinating combination of art and science that we call BioArtography.
On this site, you can purchase images displayed at the Ann Arbor Art Fair BioArtography Booth. Proceeds from the sale of this work help support the training of our next generation of researchers.
