Koch Institute Image Awards
Scientific data comes in many flavors and types, but a special place is reserved for images. Micrographs, MRI scans and other biomedical images serve as windows through which experts and non-scientists alike can glimpse otherwise invisible biological worlds.
The Koch Institute Image Awards were established to recognize and publicly display these extraordinary visuals. Out of more than 120 submissions to the 2014 Awards, 10 winning images were selected by an expert panel to appear in the Galleries.
