Celldance 2013 video awards, the 'Cell Oscars,' roll out tiny red carpet
Date:12/16/2013

NEW ORLEANS, LA, DEC. 15, 2013Time-lapse movies of a cellular heaven and hell, a crane fly sperm cell undergoing cell division, and the early development of muscle cells were recognized with the top three awards in the American Society for Cell Biology's Celldance "Really Useful" Cell Biology Video Contest for 2013.

The awards were announced and the winning videos shown at the ASCB Annual Meeting, Sunday , Dec. 14, in New Orleans. The Celldance Awards Ceremony will be Tuesday, Dec. 17, and a winners' reel will be posted at: http://www.ascb.org/ascbpost/index.php/live-from-ascb-2013

Celldance 2013 also presented its special Public Outreach award to cell biologists at the Dartmouth College, Geisel School of Medicine who videotaped their performance as "The Cell Dance!"

"Cell biology is the most visual of the sciences, and our 'Celldance' awards have become the 'Cell Oscars,'" said Simon Atkinson, PhD, chairman of ASCB's Public Information Committee (PIC), which organizes the annual competition. "Taken as a whole or taken apart, these videos will be extremely suitable for classroom use," added Atkinson, professor and chair of the Department of Biology, Indiana University-Purdue University, Indianapolis.

The first-place "Really Useful" video award, which includes a cash prize of $500, was presented to Bruno Cadot, PhD, of the Myology Institute in Paris, France, for a video showing differentiation and nuclear movement of mice muscle cells over a three-day period with a 20 minutes frame rate. The nucleus of each cell is stained with green florescent protein (GFP). As a result, the movement of the nuclei of the developing cells is clearly shown.

Second place was a tie and the Celldance judges combined and then divided the prizes from second and third place to award two second-place "Really Useful" cash prizes of $250.
