Science in Society Scientific Images Contest

The same scientific research that generates new understanding and innovation also brings unexpected and often breathtaking beauty. Submitted by Northwestern University researchers, these images represent advances across a wide range of disciplines, including medicine, genetics, chemistry, engineering and nanotechnology. Judged by an interdisciplinary panel of local artists, scientists and community leaders, the winning images have been displayed throughout the Chicagoland area, including Navy Pier, Harold Washington Library, Evanston Public Library, the Noyes Cultural Arts Center, and the Museum of Science and Industry.
