Zebrafish lab wins two Wellcome Image Awards

24 January 2011

Professor Steve Wilson's lab has won two Wellcome Image Awards in this year's competition.  The two winning images from Prof Steve Wilson's lab in CDB are as follows:

Wellcome Image Awards 2011

Winner: Monica Folgueira.

This UCL Confocal micrograph of a cavefish embryo at around five days post-fertilisation.

The embryo has been stained with an antibody against a calcium-binding protein (in green) to show different neuronal types and their processes in the nervous system. This staining also reveals taste buds, which are located around the mouth and along the body of the cavefish

Wellcome Image Awards 2011

Winner: Kara Cerveny.

This photomicrograph shows the retina from the eye of a three-day-old zebrafish (Danio rerio). Zebrafish are small tropical freshwater fish that are widely used in scientific research. The retina is viewed here from the front, as if the viewer is looking directly into the eye of the fish. This image is of the whole eye, created by reflecting half the image across its origin to represent the naturally occurring perfect symmetry observed in the zebrafish.

The 11th Wellcome Image Awards were announced on 23 February 2011, recognising the creators of the most informative, striking and technically excellent images among recent acquisitions to Wellcome Images, as chosen by a panel of judges.

The winning images are on display in Wellcome Collection until 10 July 2011. See visitor information.
