This illustration is an old favorite. It was used a journal cover for an edition examining the relationship between hypertension and low/high density lipoproteins.

Doxorubicin & Cardiotoxicity

Doxorubicin & Cardiotoxicity

This illustration was done for the cover of the Journal of Biological Chemistry. It was intended to illustrate gene deficiencies that predisposed patients cardiac tissue death when being treated with Doxorubicin, a common chemotherapeutic.

Biceps tendon

Bicuspid Aortic Valves

Bicuspid Aortic Valves

This illustration, originally done for the New England Journal of Medicine, shows the relationship between different leaflet configurations in bicuspid aortic valves, and the ejection fraction each configuration causes. The ejection fractions impose abnormal shear stress on the aortic wall causing different patterns of aneurysm.
