Honorable Mention - Vamsi Parini

Image: 

Research Associate, Pathology Core Facility

The design visible in this image, taken by Parini, a research associate at the Pathology Core Facility, is the result of an unintentional yet beautiful artifact. The artifact was created by the chemical solution that is used to mount a cover-slip onto a glass slide. The slide contains a tissue specimen - in this case breast cancer tissue (not represented in the image) - for microscopic examination.
