Project Description

This image is a 3D digital sculpture that depicts a microscopic view of the renal corpuscle, one of the key components that make up the roughly one million nephrons in a kidney. This image is one of a large collection of images, animations and interactives created to teach students about physiological concepts as associated with research. These concepts include: cardiovascular function, renal function, glucose homeostasis and lab practice. A few select images were chosen as editorial overviews of each main concept. This editorialized image of the renal corpuscle is meant to elicit student interest and create an engagement between themselves and the subject matter that is to be presented.
