2018 Scientific Images Contest Winners

Magnetic Nanoflower Open Access (recommended)

2018 Honorable Mention, Northwestern Scientific Images Contest. This image shows flower-shaped nanostructures, a next-generation technology for treating cancer. These structures are 1000 times smaller than human hair and can be programmed to reach inside targeted cancer cells. They are also magnetic, allowing them to be visualized inside the body by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
