Senses and the Brain

medical illustration of One of the greatest hurdles to creating new viable drugs is increasing their longevity before they're broken down within the body. One approach is to cloak the therapeutic proteins in a polymer (polyethylene glycol–PEG), vastly increasing its lifetime in the body and thus its efficacy.
Next medical illustration of The virus that causes the flu, influenza A, has a complex lifecycle within our cells. It hijacks our cells machinery to replicate, and assembles itself using our own cell's membrane. After inserting its own proteins into the viral particles surface, it emerges ready to infect the next cell.
