Best of Eureka - Golden Lung

The complex cell and tissue rearrangements which occur during embryonic development are important determinants of adult health. The image captures the foetal lung of a mouse beginning its complex process of branching to form the airways necessary for life outside the womb. By understanding how this occurs, we hope to better understand childhood lung disease.
