Knight Campus team secures back-cover journal illustration

A vivid, stunning visualization capturing the exquisite detail of affinity interactions critical for protein delivery: this is what scientific illustrator Ella Maru has achieved in the recent back cover of Advanced Healthcare Materials, highlighting the work done by Dr. Marian Hettiaratchi’s Lab. Researchers in the Hettiaratchi Lab have been developing protein binders called affibodies, pictured in orange. These affibodies are used to deliver bone morphogenetic protein-2, proteins critical for bone repair structures pictured in light blue.
