Stem Cell Puzzle
This laser-cut wood jigsaw puzzle features a microscopic photograph of human stem cells created in the Loring Laboratory, for use in research on treating Autism Spectrum Disorder. Scientists reprogram adult cells to produce these pluripotent cells which self-renew and have the ability to give rise to every cell type in the body.

about our puzzles
Our plywood jigsaw puzzles are made by lasers and algorithms in Somerville, MA. The intricate branching shapes of the puzzle pieces emerge from an algorithm simulating crystal growth. The organic forms are cut from plywood by a laser, resulting in a uniquely challenging puzzle crafted from premium materials.

Each puzzle includes 2 to 5 science-themed whimsies (puzzle pieces shaped like neurons, brains, DNA, microscopes, etc) that complement the photograph.
