art for neuroscience

Recently I received first and second place in an art competition for science related to the imaging work I’ve been doing.

The first prize was for an image I made in collaboration with two neuroscientists working on neurons in the spinal cord of mice.

Second prize was for a black and white photo of the amyloid proteins associated with Alzheimer’s disease growing across glass.

Below are a few of the other images I’ve taken recently in similar work.
