Winning Research Illustration Masterpieces picked for RRF
You need to upgrade your Flash Player & enable JavaScript to view this Flash movie.

The results are in for the Research Illustration Masterpieces contest, which sought images from science to be reproduced larger than life and displayed as art on the walls of the Replacement Research Facility for years to come.

The contest was open to Medical School students, staff, faculty, and physicians-in-training who had the opportunity to submit research images in the form of MRI, fMRI, electron microscope, etc. The winning art, chosen by a review committee, will be enlarged to four-foot by four-foot squares and mounted near the elevator banks on the first four floors of the RRF.
