'Celldance' spotlights cell biologists' images and videos
Date:12/11/2010

The most visual of the life sciences, cell biology will show off its dazzling side at "Celldance 2010," the American Society for Cell Biology's annual film and image contest. The winning videos and images will be shown on Saturday, Dec. 11, at the ASCB's 50th annual meeting in Philadelphia.

A fruit fly embryo's sealing shut its new epidermis is revealed in "Cellular Recognition," the first-place video of U. Serdar Tulu, PhD, of Duke University. The first-place "Celldance" 2010 award includes $500.

For a still image, the first-place $500 award will be presented to Li He, a graduate student at Johns Hopkins University, for "Actomyosin and Focal Adhesion in Fly Egg Chamber," a confocal micrograph of the follicle cells of a fruit fly egg chamber stained in three colors that resemble a stained glass window.

Winner of the special video prize for "Public Outreach" will be Leonard Bosgraaf, Ph.D., of Molecular Shots, Inc., in The Netherlands, for "Firing Neurons," a movie created entirely by computer animation that takes the viewer inside neurons that are firing action potentials.

"Celldance" will recognize a total of 10 ASCB members (identified below) for their visually engaging and scientifically important videos and images, most of which were created during research on the cellular mechanisms that underlie human health and disease.

This year's "Celldance" will be one of the highlights of ASCB's 50th annual meeting. After WWI, cell biology grew into a scientific field as a result of breakthroughs in imaging technologies such as electron microscopy.

Today, cell biology has become even more revealing as a result of developments in fluorescent proteins, metallic nano tagging, and resolution of complex life processes on the molecular level, said Northwestern University scientist Rex Chisholm, Ph.D., who chairs the ASCB's Public Information Committee, which sponsors "Celldance."
