PHGY Image Contest


The Physiology Image Contest is now open!

The Physiology Image Contest focuses on finding microscopy images generated through your research activities in the Physiology Department. We are looking for images that showcase the technical knowledge needed to generate the image (type of sample, labelling, imaging technique) and the technical aspects of the image (no shading artifacts, colour overlays, good resolution) that are also visually appealing.

The winner will receive a $300 prizesecond place will receive $200 and third place will receive $100. Winners will be determined through a People's Choice vote.
