Take a Magical Journey with a White Blood Cell
Are you beautiful on the inside? Yes you are! Just what is going on inside your body as you live your everyday life? All kinds of stuff. Remember in biology class all that info we got about cells making up everything. There’s kidney cell and lung cells , white blood cells, red blood cells, etc, etc. .
Well Harvard University wanted to take cellular biology students on a journey into the microscopic world of a cell. Since we don’t have that shrinking technology and there are all kinds of liabilities involved in that anyway, they enlisted XVIVO to develop an animation that would take the students on the journey.
According to Harvard, the video illustrates mechanisms that allow a white blood cell to sense its surroundings and respond to an external stimulus. Yeah Uh, Right! Anyway its prettiful!
This award winning piece was the first topic in a series of animations XVIVO is creating for Harvard’s educational website, BioVisions at Harvard.
