Roslin Student shortlisted in image competition

Declan King, a PhD student from The Roslin Institute, has had his image shortlisted in the BBSRC's Images with Impact competition.

A microscopy image of the complex networks established between nerve cells grown in the laboratory

The competition sought images that represented how life sciences are changing the world, in areas such as: food, farming, bioenergy, biotech, industry and health.

The shortlist has been selected by an esteemed panel of judges. Now the public get their say and can vote for the category winners and runners up.

Great Britain has always been the home of bioscience discovery. Penicillin, the DNA double helix and The Roslin Institute's very own sheep called 'Dolly' were all born of UK research, but never before has bioscience moved at such a pace.

With this competition the BBSRC aimed to capture the exciting developments and challenges happening in bioscience today, with images from the Great British public, its students and its researchers.

Declan's image was shortlisted in the "Images from a student" category and is a microscopy image of the complex networks established between nerve cells grown in the laboratory.

The three category winners will go on to be shown at the Great British Bioscience Festival in London on 14-16 November where visitors will vote to decide the overall winner.

The shortlist will go to public vote to decide the category winners and runners up. Voting will close on 31 October 2014 so please share this story and vote.
