I made a nerdy video!

Happy Pi Day!   π

I made a video for my immunology class!  Watch and maybe learn something :)

As I've said before, I love crafts+science.

Some background: Macrophages are one of the early defenders against infection in your body.  They phagocytose (or eat up) bacteria and pathogens that they find, like if you get a cut.  When the macrophage realize that your body is harboring foreign fugitives, it does its best to sound the alarm to the rest of your immune system by producing inflammatory cytokines.
