HONORABLE MENTIONS: VIDEO:
Mary David, Ph.D., Molecular Devices, Inc., Downingtown, PA, for "The Chase." In the early days of cell biology, shooting 16mm movie film through a microscope was cutting-edge technology. David Rogers' 1950s film was the first to image human polymorphonuclear leukocytes chasing bacteria. The camera framing could not capture the entire chase. David used digital processing to combine Rogers's bacterial chase into a single panorama.
Kira Henderson, graduate student at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, for "Cellular Wasteland," featuring live DIC images of human mesenchymal stem cells taken hourly for five days and displayed at five frames per second.
Jason Stumpff, Ph.D., University of Washington, Seattle for "Interphase Mitochondria Dynamics," showing transfected HeLa cells imaged at 37C by using a Deltavision system. The HeLa cells were transfected with plasmid DNA encoding mCherry-alpha-tubulin and GFP fused to the leader sequence of E1-alpha pyruvate dehydrogenase.
Torsten Woellert, graduate student at Syracuse University in NY, for "Migration of Human Oral Keratinocytes," showing human oral keratinocytes, OKF6/TERT-2 cells, grown in 35 mm glass bottom dishes to 30 percent confluence followed by co-culture with a Candida albicans mutant.
HONORABLE MENTIONS: IMAGES:
2nd Place image winner, Graham Johnson of the Scripps Research Institute, for "Patronus," which represents the patronin protein's function metaphorically, and relatively recognizably, as the Harry Potter character, Patronus.
2nd Place video winner, Rosalind Silverman, University of Toronto, for "An Extended Actin Net." With actin in red and DNA in blue, an actin net is captured as it organizes nuclei in migratory smooth muscle cells from rat arteries. The actin net contributes to the rear polarizatio
