The Capturing Cancer Photography Competition was created to provide an opportunity for all cancer researchers and clinicians to share their work using imagery; from images that can only be observed with the aid of a microscope to photos demonstrating key themes in clinical oncology.
Capturing Cancer Photography Competition 2020 winners
We are delighted to announce the winners of the 2020 Capturing Cancer: Oncology Central Photography Competition. Louisiane Perrin (Gligorijevic Laboratory at the Bioengineering Department of Temple University, PA, USA) and Anita Singh (University of Leicester, UK) were chosen as the winners by an expert judging panel and a public vote, respectively.
Perrin won the judges vote for her image entitled ‘Cancer cells chatting’, which embodies her work investigating the collagen matrix that surrounds cancer cells and the way in which cancer cells communicate amongst each other.
Singh won the public’s vote for her photo entitled ‘Cause or consequence of centrosome amplification’. Singh is currently researching how mitotic defects increase genomic instability. Her photo depicts three daughter cells in the telophase stage with multiple centrosomes, which are a result of centrosome amplification during mitosis. The presence of more than two centrosomes is a common feature in cancer.
