Because we learn so much about our world through vision, images have become a crucial part of modern science. Pictures lend an immediacy and a deeper understanding of complex phenomena, from cells to stars, that cannot be captured by numbers alone. But in addition to providing compelling data, scientific images can also be valuable for their sheer beauty. A selection of dazzling images from the life sciences now adorns the TAC Gallery, a permanent exhibit adjoining The Anlyan Center, a hub of biomedical research at the School of Medicine. We will feature more images from the TAC Gallery in this space in future issues.
