FASEB 2012 BioArt Winners
The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology hosts a yearly photo contest (with a volume submissions we can only aspire to), this year’s winner showcase some truly remarkable and incredible research, stunning visual imagery, and aesthetics on par with any great artwork.
Each day scientific investigators produce thousands of images during the course of their research. FASEB believes that these images are an important, yet underutilized, resource in the community’s effort to engage and educate the general public and policy makers about biomedical research.
FASEB is seeking the submission of captivating, high resolution images that represent the cutting edge of 21st
century biomedical research. These laboratory-based images must be original photographs or illustrations by current or former National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded investigators, contractors, or trainees or members of FASEB constituent societies
. Further, each submission must also include a nontechnical, 100-word statement that articulates the broader relevance of the science represented by the image. When viewed in conjunction with the supporting nontechnical statement, submissions should be both visually arresting and clearly communicate a cutting edge biomedical science concept.
