Winners of the 2015 Molecular Imaging Center Image Contest

ZEISS-sponsored contest at the OpenMIC@Berkeley shows the beauty of science

First place: Carlos Pantoja, a postdoc from the Isacoff Lab, with his image of neurons involved in escape behavior in zebrafish, taken on ZEISS LSM 880.

 

ZEISS together with the Open MIC and Cancer Research Laboratory at Berkeley University wishes to thank all of the researchers who entered their images into the contest, making it very difficult for the judges Holly Aaron, Christian Gainer, Jen Lee, Mary West, and Judith Yee to narrow down the field. We are proud to be sharing with you compilations of all entries, the finalists, and the winning images.
