CCRC researcher wins Image Award

Stefan Eberhard, a research professional in the Complex Carbohydrate Research Center, was recognized recently for his outstanding microscope image at the 2014 Wellcome Trust Image Awards in London, an international competition celebrating the best in science imaging talent and techniques.

His winning image, taken with a scanning electron microscope, features an extraordinarily detailed close-up of an Arabidopsis thaliana flower, commonly known as thale cress.

Eighteen winners were chosen by seven judges for the 2014 competition, and their images were displayed across the United Kingdom at four major science centers as well as in a window display at the Wellcome Trust’s headquarters in London.
