Micrograph showing a glomerulus with a thrombus. The glomerulus is part of a nephron. PAS stain.

A Wikipedian. The name Nephron comes from the structural unit of the kidney.

I've been around WP since late 2004 and signed-up in mid-2005. I have a couple of thousand edits.

I have also contributed approximately 2,500 micrographs to the Wikicommons. Many of these images are found on WP. I can also be found on MediaWiki.
