2016 Winners of FASEB BioArt Competition Announced

On November 22, 2016, the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) was pleased to announce the winners of its fifth annual BioArt competition. This year’s 10 winning images and three videos represent a wide range of research in the biomedical and life sciences, from technology that may aid in recovery from spinal cord injury to a portrait of the New York City skyline “printed” in yeast. Winning entries were unveiled on the FASEB’s web site and will be exhibited at the National Institutes of Health. “It’s so important to seize opportunities to share the wonder of discovery with the public. The BioArt images showcase the beauty of scientific research and are a great place to start the conversation,” said Hudson Freeze, Ph.D., FASEB President. The Image winners are: “Skyline of New York City” created by “printing” nanodroplets of yeast — Michael Shen, Jasmine Temple, Leslie Mitchell, and Jef Boeke, New York University School of Medicine, Nick Phillips, James Chuang, and Jiarui Wang, Johns Hopkins University; “Immune cells battling a urinary tract infection”— Valerie O'Brien, Matthew Joens, Scott J. Hultgren, and James A.J. Fitzpatrick, Washington University in St. Louis; “Nerve cells growing on a nanofiber gel that may aid recovery from spinal cord injury” (image here)—Mark McClendon, Zaida Alvarez Pinto, and Samuel I.
