Of her winning image, Siv said that macrophages are visualised in the adult mouse testis using a transgenic CX3CR1-GFP knockout mouse model. 

"Macrophages with a stellate/dendriform morphology are widely spaced along the outside of the tubule, while macrophages in clusters are found within the interstitial space of the testis," said Siv.
