Award for Outstanding Scientific Photography

Berlin, 14 December 2010

‘Images of Research’ is one of the most popular competitions for scientific photography. The jury annually presents outstanding images from two categories and the traveling exhibition has attracted more than four million people since 2005.

In the ‘Fascination of Research’ category, Micronaut was awarded with the 1st prize for the second time in three years (see awards).

According to the jury, the winning entry ‘What’s the face of cancer?’ shows a “metastasizing cancer cell from a stunning perspective and reveals impressive details thanks to a remarkably precise coloration”. The cancer cell was originally extracted from an invasively growing human carcinoma and is now functionally explored in cancer research projects all around the globe.
