Biosciences win three Wellcome Image Awards
24 February 2011
The UCL Division of Biosciences has won three Wellcome Image Awards. Two awards have been won by Prof Steve Wilson's lab in the UCL Resarch Department of Cell and Developmental Biology (CDB) and one award has been won by Prof Michael Häusser from the UCL Research Department of Neuroscience (NPP) with Dr Hermann Cuntz from the UCL Wolfson Institute for Biomedical Research.
The three winning images from Biosciences are as follows:

Winner: Monica Folgueira, Prof Wilson's Lab, CDB
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

Winner: Kara Cerveny, Prof Wilson's Lab, CDB
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.

Winners: Michael Häusser, NPP with Hermann Cuntz, WIBR
This computer simulated image shows synthetic pyramidal neurons, of optimised size, shape and connectivity, that are indistinguishable from those found in the real biological brain. Pyramidal cells are so-called as they have a pyramid-shaped cell body (soma), and are also characterised by long branching dendrites. They are found in the forebrain (cortex and hippocampus) of mammals and are thought to be involved in cognitive function.
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.
