is a cross-scientific graduate school focused on microscopy and micro imaging. Microscopy methods have developed with an increasing rate in the last few decades and have become the foundation for much of modern research in physics, chemistry, materials science, biology and science. The number of microscopy techniques has increased almost exponentially; often a new method has been developed based on a precise problem faced by a researcher in a particular field. ADMIRE focuses on microscopy spanning across a number of research fields, since a lot of modern and future science will depend on already existing and newly developed microscopy methods.
This time the ADMIRE Microscopy Image of the Year Competition has a topic: SCIENCE=ART. Show your fellow ADMIRE members that your microscopy images are masterpieces of science. Maybe if you look at them with a new angle you can see that your cells look like Monet’s waterlilies or your nanowires like a composition of Kandinsky. The winner of the ADMIRE Microscopy Image of the Year Competition will get an iPad to use for his/her research.
To participate submit an experimental microscopy image or animation to the coordinator of ADMIRE, Maria Messing. Adjustments, such as coloring, of the microscopy image are allowed. Along with the image, one or two sentences describing the image should also be submitted. The Research School Advisory Board judges all images by two criteria: aesthetically appealing and interesting from a scientific point of view, to select the winning image.
For more information and inspiration you can look at the winning contributions from previous years here.
If you are a PhD student that has an interest in any type of advanced microscopy techniques, ADMIRE (Advanced Microscopy Research Environment) is the graduate research school for you! ADMIRE is a cross-scientific graduate school with the main goal to enhance training possibilities and to stimulate multi- and inter-disciplinary research. PhD students that are part of ADMIRE can participate in workshops, get access to a number of microscopy related courses and apply for scholarships to travel to other microscopy centers and/or microscopy related conferences.
