Jamie Cullen (cover and “Cells on the Move”) is an English illustrator who cites Pop Art and M C Escher’s impossible constructions among his many influences. His illustrations often involve layers of visual discovery, with hidden elements emerging from intricate drawings. Cullen has worked with a range of clients, including Nike, Coca-Cola, Virgin Mobile, VW, and Reebok.

California-born, Brooklyn-based, Dustin Aksland (“Enter the Samurai”) exhibits his photographs regularly and has collaborated with clients such as Monocle, Esquire, Details, and Dwell. When he’s not traveling or retouching images in his dark, windowless studio, he can be found roaming the streets of New York City in search of a good taco.

Nashville-based Elise Lamar (“Cells on the Move”) is a freelance science writer and editor. After working in labs for 15 years, she earned a midlife Ph.D. at the University of California, San Diego, where she studied neurogenesis at the Salk Institute. She writes primarily about molecular biology, but a three-year stint in Los Angeles left her obsessed with extreme commuting, a health hazard she is looking for a fellow writer to help her explore.
Erin Peterson (“Making Bigger Better”), a Minneapolis-based freelancer, writes about higher education issues for USA TODAY publications, Minnesota Monthly, and numerous colleges and universities. She learned to appreciate science from her dad, who once helped her try to fry an egg on a sidewalk. In addition to writing, her favorite activities include running and cheering for the Minnesota Twins.
