The Royal Society of London has selected Paul Gignac, Ph.D., assistant professor of anatomy, as a finalist of its annual photography competition and will display Gignac’s work during an international exhibition on Saturday and Sunday in London.
Gignac’s submission is a chemically enhanced micro-CT scan of a snake head and brain. The image was produced in collaboration with Nathan Kley, Ph.D., at Stony Brook University in New York and is part of his research into methods capable of visualizing soft-tissue anatomy in micro-CT images. The research is funded through a $300,000 National Science Foundation grant and is part of a worldwide research initiative through diceCT.
The photography competition celebrates the power of photography to communicate science and the role images play in making science more accessible to a wide audience. To view featured photos at the Open House exhibition, visit The Royal Society of London.
