Our analysis of crawling neutrophils is published in eLife

Our paper “Actin-based protrusions of migrating neutrophils are intrinsically lamellar and facilitate direction changes” came out today in eLife. Here, we describe how we apply new imaging techniques (lattice light sheet microscopy) as well as 3D visualization to understand how white blood cells can migrate quickly through complex 3D environments. This paper was the result of a three year collaboration between Dr. Eric Betzig’s lab, and Megan Riel-Mehan who was a postdoc studying data visualization in Graham Johnson’s lab when he was at UCSF. This is our first experience publishing with eLife. We were blown away with editorial process, particularly the collaborative peer review. Five stars, would submit again.
