Submissions for the SOM “Art in Science” Competition are due by October 20, 2021.
Scientists in the UNC School of Medicine truly embody the UNC Health tagline- “Scientists of Discovery, Artists of Innovation”. In celebration of 2021 University Research Week (November 8-12), the SOM is soliciting nominations for innovative scientific images that showcase the outstanding biomedical research in the School and the beauty that is reflected in the science.
Each lab in the SOM is eligible to submit one scientific image that was taken/published in the last 18 months and represents the biology that is the focus of the lab.
A submission should include:
- One original research image (please provide the highest resolution image you have; must be > 300dpi at an 8inX8in size or better)
- A title and brief description of what the image represents and the underlying biomedical relevance.
- The name of the Principal Investigator for the lab and the person(s) who captured the image. The PI must have a primary or joint appointment in the SOM.
All submissions must be emailed to Oor_submissions@med.unc.edu by October 20, 2021. Please include a link to a one drive or dropbox location if the file size is too large for email.
Images will be chosen for their aesthetic excellence, their scientific or technical interest, and for their universal appeal for both scientists and non-scientists. Up to three images will be selected to display during University Research Week and each winning lab will be awarded $300.
