I am pleased to announce the second annual Art in Science Competition at the Perelman School of Medicine. The competition’s goal is to raise awareness and bring exposure to the artistic merit of scientific images and interpretation. The competition is divided into two categories for judging: Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Fellows. An award of $250 will be given to the best image in each category.

In addition to the prize, the postdoctoral category image will also be featured as the cover image for all materials at the 2014 BPC Symposium in November.

 At this time, I invite you to forward images or illustrations for consideration to Kristine Gindele.
