Anatomical Society’s Best Image Prize

The Anatomical Society awarded the Best Image Prize to PhD student Patricia Medesan for her image entitled ‘Science in Bloom’.

The Best Image Prize is awarded twice a year and the images submitted by members are judged by the Website, Media and Communications Committee.

The winning entry is a pseudo-colorized scanning electron micrograph of the in vitro mineralised jellyfish collagen scaffold (Jellagen®Ltd). Owing to the highly porous structure of the scaffold, collagen fibres (PINK and GREEN) are randomly tangled in a flower-like shape, with mineral deposition (yellow) observed on the surface for enhanced osseointegration and new bone formation.

Many congratulations to Patricia.
