Cell bio images and videos stun contest judges

The American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) is pleased to announce the winners of its third image and video contest. ASCB’s Public Information Committee (PIC) had the daunting task of choosing the winning entries.

“We were delighted with all entries submitted, which represent some of the most stunning cell biology visualizations and imaging techniques available,” said PIC co-chair Ryoma Ohi of the University of Michigan.
