Three of my images have been shortlisted for the European Proteomics Association (EuPA) 2012 Proteomics Photography and Graphic Arts Contest. The three images illustrate different aspects of proteomics, which is the study of all proteins in a given system, such as a cell. You can vote for your favourite image here.
My photograph has been shortlisted for the University of Manchester Images of Research Photography Competition. My image analogises fishing to the molecular techniques I use in the laboratory to investigate cell adhesion.
The shortlisted images are currently being exhibited at the John Rylands Library, Deansgate (3-28 October), and then at the University of Manchester Science Spectacular event at Whitworth Hall (29 October). You can vote for your favourite image at one of these exhibitions or online here!
This week’s issue of Science Signaling features an image that I designed for its cover. In conjunction with this week’s Science Special Issue on Dealing with Data, the Science Signaling Focus Issue examines the issues surrounding the rapid increase in the generation of research data and how to address the challenges of storing, curating and accessing these data.
My cover image is based on data from the proteomic analysis of integrin adhesion complexes, which we published previously in Science Signaling. In the image, proteins detected by mass spectrometry in different signalling complexes were compared by hierarchical clustering and displayed as a heat map.
Four of my images have been shortlisted for the European Proteomics Association (EuPA) 2010 Photography and Graphic Arts Contest. The images attempt to illustrate the complexity of cell signalling, and they represent different aspects of my work on the proteomic analysis of integrin adhesion complexes in Martin Humphries’s lab.
