Titre: Human stem cell-derived retinal organoid
Légende: Retinal organoid derived from human stem cells. Stepwise differentiation of cells from retinal progenitors (SOX2 stained in red) to mature photoreceptors (CRX stained in green), mimicking retinal development.

Titre: Nanoparticles on the retinal pigment epithelium
Légende: The image showed the ex vivo choroid (layer adjacent to the photoreceptors) covered with gold nanoparticles (small white spots). Compared to these nanoparticles of 100nm in diameter, small red blood cells became giants. When light shines on the nanoparticles, they can act as miniscule scalpels and treat cells individually. Due to the small size of nanoparticles and their light-activable characteristics, innovative diagnostics and therapeutics solutions became possible for obstacles in diseases that were hard to treat previously.
