The image at right was featured in a Nov. 6 blog post by NIH director Francis Collins, MD, PhD, called “Snapshots of Life: Inside a Bone Remodeling Project.” Dr. Collins explains what he calls a “gorgeous image” depicts.

“In this snapshot of bone formation, you can see osteoclasts (red) carving a path through the cartilaginous knee joint of a mouse (purple and white). Inside the tube carved by the osteoclasts, a new blood vessel carries blood cells (yellow) and other cells vital to bone building: bone marrow stem cells and osteoblasts,” wrote Collins.
