Understanding the chemical foundations of life requires knowledge about the rate of chemical reactions in cells. The rates of these reactions depend on how fast the participating molecules move (diffuse) in the cytoplasm.

Maciej Frolow was commissioned by the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences to help depict these molecules’ differing movements and the role they play in our biology.
