Celldance 2012 video awards, the 'Cell Oscars,' roll out tiny red carpet
Date:12/17/2012

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, December 17, 2012--A microscopic-scale "Star Wars" epic featuring cells brandishing light sabres, a time-lapse of a fruitfly's embryonic development, and the dance-like movement of cancer cells in lab cultures were recognized as the top three "Celldance" awards at the American Society for Cell Biology's Annual Meeting, in San Francisco. The special Public Outreach award went to "Invisible," a live action film about a boy's awakening to the wonders of the universe. It was a collaboration between scientists and filmmakers in Ireland.

"Cell biology is the most visual of the sciences, and our 'Celldance' awards have become the 'Cell Oscars,'" said Simon Atkinson, Ph.D., chairman of the ASCB's Public Information Committee (PIC), which organizes the competition. Dr. Atkinson is at the School of Science at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. Serving as PIC's chief judge for eighth edition of Celldance was Duane Compton, PhD, who is at the Dartmouth Medical School.

The complete winners' reel from "Celldance 2012," the ASCB's cell biology film contest, was posted online at: http://www.ascb.org/celldancecompilation/celldance2012/

The top cash prize of $500 for First Place went to Stephanie Nowotarski, a self-described microscopy enthusiast and a graduate student at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC. Her winning time-lapse video, titled "Drosophila Dorsal Closure" telescopes the cell-by-cell embryonic development of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster, a commonly used laboratory model. Cells of two tissue types work together to close the dorsal, or back, midline of the embryonic fly.

The second place prize winner is Lynne Cassimeris, Ph.D., professor of cell biology at Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA, for her film, "Cell Wars." Dr. Cassimeris said the idea of a "Star Wars" parody emerged when her
