One of my photos is featured on the cover of the latest issue of Cell Chemical Biology. The article describes research into metformin, a drug derived from the French lilac (Galega officinalis), for the treatment of breast cancer. The research was done at the University of Minnesota, and was sponsored in part by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
This is especially meaningful to me because my grandmother was a cancer research scientist.
Snowbells (Leucojum aestivum) or Summer Snowflakes because they bloom a few weeks after Spring Snowflakes ( Leucojum vernum); also known as Loddon Lilies because they were first found near the River Loddon, Hampshire, UK.
