Peter Barr-Gillespie, Ph.D, and Kateri Spinelli, Ph.D. are one of 12 winners of the 2014 Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) annual BioArt competition. Their submission, showing the sensory hair cells of a chick, was captured by scanning electron microscopy. The image comes from joint work to discover better methods to detect and treat hearing loss and disrupted balance.
The 12 winning images and videos demonstrate the breadth of ongoing research in the biomedical and life sciences. Winning entries were unveiled on FASEB’s website and will be exhibited at the National Institutes of Health. The BioArt competition is open to members of FASEB constituent societies and biomedical and life scientists whose research is supported by federal funds. More information about the competition can be found on the BioArt website.
