Beautiful Life Science Fashion Now Available through Link on BioQuick

BioQuick News has added an exciting new advertiser we would like you to know about. It is “A Slice of Life Scarves” (http://www.asliceoflifescarves.com/), which produces highly artistic fashion products such as scarves and ties that feature images of biological structures observed with light and electron microscopy by their creator, Eve Reaven, Ph.D. Images include such structures as mitochondria, Golgi bodies, the endoplasmic reticulum, hormone secretory granules, actin filaments, and centrioles, all rendered in beautiful artistic patterns by Dr. Reaven. Dr. Reaven earned her Ph.D. in anatomy at the University of Chicago, working in a lab that had one of the first electron microscopes in the United States. Her work over the last several decades has helped elucidate the scavenger receptor pathway responsible for the bulk uptake and utilization of lipoprotein cholesterol by cells. Until her retirement, Dr. Reaven was a career research scientist at the Veteran’s Administration Hospital in Palo Alto, California, and for many years had been a senior research associate in the department of medicine at Stanford University. You can find an ad for “A Slice of Life Scarves” in BioQuick’s right-hand column and if you click on the ad, you will be taken to Dr. Reaven’s site, where you can view her beautiful collection of life science fashion items that are for sale. Once you see these beautiful products we believe you will become a life-time fan of Dr. Reaven’s fabulous work. We also hope that you will be convinced to purchase some of her uniquely magnificent creations. [A Slice of Life Scarves web site]
