The Beauty of Science

  • September 17, 2021

Science is a complex and ever-evolving field. Advances in microscopy in recent years now allows scientists to capture the beauty of nature at the most minute levels.

Marko Pende, a postdoctoral researcher in the Murawala lab, recently entered the 2021 ZEISS Microscopy Image Contest with an image he took using a ZEISS Axio Zoom Stereo microscope. His image, “Axolotl Soup,” shows live imaging of different cell populations labelled with fluorescent transgenic reporter signals in juvenile axolotls. Selected from more than 1300 images, Axolotl Soup was awarded an honorable mention in the international contest.
