The UNC School of Medicine laboratory of Camille Ehre, PhD, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, produced striking images in respiratory tract cultures of the infectious form of the SARS-CoV-2 virus produced by infected respiratory epithelial cells. Ehre, a member of the UNC Marsico Lung Institute captured these images to illustrate how intense the SARS-CoV-2 infection of the airways can be in very graphic and easily understood images.
