Restoring someone’s vision has always been the domain of science fiction. However, researchers like Tom Johnson are working towards bringing vision back a medical reality.

Cilia are the “fingers” of cells. They are the tiny protrusions that reach out from the cell and can sweep away debris and mucus. That’s exactly what cilia do in cells that line the airway. In these 3D images of epithelial cells in a mouse’s trachea, scientist and @johnshopkinsu President’s Frontier Award winner Andrew Holland and Ph.D. candidate Gina LoMastro demonstrate how cells build cilia.
Photomicrographs of megakaryocytes, large cells from the bone marrow that produce platelets for clotting and wound repair, as found by Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers within the capillaries of brains of people who died of COVID-19. These cells may be responsible for the “brain fog” reported by many patients with severe cases of the disease.
