Natural Killer Cells

This illustration was created for a feature article in the October 2011 issue of the Washington University in St. Louis Alumni Magazine article by Steve Kohler. “Professor Wayne Yokoyama, MD, long intrigued by the function of natural killer (NK) cells, has shown that NK cells, using a “licensing strategy,” are vitally important elements of the immune system. In 2010, on the occasion of accepting the Lee C. Howley Sr. Prize for his pioneering arthritis research, Wayne M. Yokoyama, MD, told his audience that real advances in science do not come from the close application of previously...

Angiogenesis Targeting

TTV 02 Angiogenesis Targeting: Mechanism of action animation that explains angiogenesis and it’s roll in cancer growth. VEGF factors in anti-angiogenic activity, helping to stop and reverse cancer growth and proliferation. Angiogenesis can be targeted by various types of drug agents (EGFR or HER1, VEGF, VEGF receptor and MMP inhibitors) which can interrupt the growth of tumor vasculature. Storyboard, Illustration and Animation by Jennifer Fairman. TTV 02: Angiogenesis Targeting from Fairman Studios on Vimeo. Angiogenesis can be targeted by various types of drug agents (EGFR or HER1, VEGF,...
