A microscopically-accurate model of a cancer cell.
U87 is a type of Glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer,
formed when glial cells supporting the nervous system begin
to divide too quickly.
We constructed this model from 3D microscopy images; you can hold it in the palm of your hand at a scale 700 times larger than real life.
Ideal for students of anatomy, cell biology and cancer research.
