The October 2021 Image Contest: Meet the Winners

After an amazing turnout for our first social media image contest, we decided to hold another. We asked our followers on LinkedIn and Twitter to submit their most eye-catching tissue images, and they did not disappoint. Our judges had a tough time choosing the top three winning images. Check out their picks and the scientists behind them.

Sarah Nersesian, MSc, Dalhousie University

Sarah is currently a PhD candidate at Dalhousie University. She captured this image at 20X and re-created it digitally in collaboration with David Edgar, a talented young artist who suddenly passed away in July. The image is of tonsil tissue stained with CD16a, CD56, CD94, CD68, CD3, PacnCk, and DAPI using Opal™ reagents, the Mantra™ Quantitative Pathology Workstation, and inForm® software.
