This is amazing thank you! I need to know more about green red blood cells! Also I love the ladies of Immune! They are like Greek Goddesses of Science! ( Please don’t be offended. I mean this in the most respectful way! I have great admiration and respect for them,)
Thank you for this inspiration!
Also I need to see these images! I think it could be a painting. I hope the article is open access.
