What lies beneath your skin! From left to right, stylized sweat gland, bulbs of Krause (sense cold), organs of Ruffini (sense heat), nerve endings, Meissner corpuscles (vibration and touch), Merkel's disks (sense touch), Pacinian corpuscle (sense pressure, and last but not least, the hair bulb, sebaceous gland and muscle (goose bumps!). It's a dermy dream!
It's been a while since we checked in with Team Menstrual Cycles, our favorite band of bike-riding gynecologists who are on a mission to raise money for multiple sclerosis research. Turns out the team raised over $50,000, and they won a prize for best jersey design! Go go go! Check out the brains on that team. We were so so happy to work with them on their jerseys. They are planning to raise more funds with t-shirts of similar design, so we will keep you posted on how you can contribute to MS research.
