Dr. Andy McMahon and the judges of the USC Stem Cell Image of the Month contest would like to congratulate our January 2014 winner, Camilla Teng, a graduate student in Dr. Rob Maxson’s lab at the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center and Dr. Gage Crump’s lab at the Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at USC. Her winning image of a mouse ear is currently on display in the Foyer of the Eli and Edythe Broad CIRM Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at USC.
The image resembles a blossom, and is a look inside the ear of a mouse, with the middle ear ossicles off-centered.
Teng should contact Dr. Ruffins to claim her prizes: a high-quality print of her winning entry and $50.
Thank you to everyone who entered this month’s contest. All entries will be posted on the USC Stem Cell Facebook page. We look forward to receiving the entries for the February 2014 contest, which has an entry deadline of February 28.
About the USC Stem Cell Image of the Month Contest
The Image of the Month contest invites USC stem cell researchers from across the university to submit high-resolution images, videos or artistic renditions. The goal is to encourage and showcase the scientific excellence and creativity of USC’s research enterprise.
Each winner receives a $50 gift card and a print of his or her entry, which is also displayed in the Foyer of the Eli and Edythe Broad CIRM Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at USC. All entries are posted on the USC Stem Cell website.
USC faculty, post-doctoral researchers or students wishing to enter should submit their images or videos, one-sentence informative captions, names and laboratory affiliations to Dr. Seth Ruffins at firstname.lastname@example.org by the last day of each month.
