If you've ever read a paper wishing that it included a figure that summed up the results clearly and concisely then I don't have to preach the benefits of these illustrations to you. The images on this page were all commissioned for use in research or review articles. The authors here either had a good idea of what they wanted but needed some help with the visuals, or they just gave me the manuscript and said, "Help.".

These two figures above were actually made for a biotech company's slide deck, but I snuck them into this page because they feel more at home here, and I don't have a "slide deck" page. All of the gene names have been removed because I am bound by a confidentiality agreement not to disclose any of the details, but each circle represents a specific protein that is either associated with quiescence (blue) or T cell activation (red). Treatment with drug (green) on the right hand side results in a more quiescent state. The figure is meant to show at a a glance that there is more blue and less red with drug.

The finalized figure was simplified from this original illustration, which was based on a sketch from one of the authors.
