And the winner is…

Posted by , on 7 June 2024

In an exciting turn of events, we are delighted to announce that the winner of the FocalPlane/elmi (European Light Microscopy Initiative) is the electron micrograph, ‘Glorious Lymphocyte’ from Rossana Melo! The image shows a leukocyte (lymphocyte) trapped among aggregates of red blood cells in a small lung vessel of a patient with asthma. The image was acquired with a transmission electron microscope (Tecnai G2 Spirit Bio Twin ThermoFischer Scientific) at 80 KV at the Harvard Medical School Electron Microscopy Core Facility and was colorised using Photoshop. You can read more about Rossana’s research in our ‘Featured image’ post earlier this year.

Thanks to everyone who voted in the competition and congratulations to Rossana and all the shortlisted researchers. You’ll see Rossana’s image on the cover of Journal of Cell Science soon!
