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!

The photography competition forms one aspect of the University of Manchester Science Spectacular, which is part of this year’s Manchester Science Festival (22-30 October).

My photo was also selected for a BBC News feature about the Images of Research.
