2018 Scientific Images Contest Winners

Blooming Gelatin Open Access (recommended)

2018 Fifth Place, Northwestern Scientific Images Contest. This microscope image shows a flower-like irregularity in the surface of a gelatin-based material. Gelatin is best known as the main ingredient in Jell-O and many gummy candies. The gelatin here has been chemically altered to be stronger so that we can use it to help understand how kidney cells interact and function and to eventually engineer new kidney tissue in the laboratory.
