Each day scientific investigators produce thousands of images during the course of their research. FASEB believes that these images are an important, yet underutilized, resource in the community’s effort to engage and educate the general public and policy makers about biomedical research.
To encourage the dissemination of these images, FASEB would like to recognize the most captivating representations of cutting edge biomedical research. These original, laboratory-based images must be produced by current or former National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded investigators, contractors, or trainees or members of FASEB constituent societies.
The top 10 submissions will be featured on the FASEB and NIH websites, the NIH campus, and at FASEB’s centennial celebration on the United States congressional complex.

Please submit your entries via email. The submission deadline is March 2, 2012. Each submission must include the following:
1) High resolution, print-ready photograph or illustration;
2) 100 word, non-technical statement that articulates the broader relevance of the science represented by the image;
3) Names and institutional affiliations of all co-entrants;
4) Current or former NIH funding source (e.g., grant number).
FASEB is composed of 26 societies with more than 100,000 members, making it the largest coalition of biomedical research associations in the United States. Celebrating 100 Years of Advancing the Life Sciences in 2012, FASEB is rededicating its efforts to advance health and well-being by promoting progress and education in biological and biomedical sciences through service to our member societies and collaborative advocacy.
