    "The ability to directly visualize fluorescent pathogens as they move through the body and interact with immune cells has provided a new dimension to studies of host-pathogen interactions in diverse tissues, including lymph nodes, brain, liver, gut, and skin."

    "Imaging has also been used to visualize the standoff between pathogens and T cell effectors at sites of chronic infection."
