HFSP grantees win NSF/AAAS photography competition

HFSP grant awardees Roman Stocker (MIT, Cambridge, USA) and Assaf Vardi (Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel), together with their postdocs Vicente Fernandez (MIT), Orr Shapiro (WIS) and Melissa Garren (MIT) have won the NSF/AAAS International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge in the photography category. Their sophisticated collage of a coral derived ‘whirlpool’ shows how coral polyps maintain their micro-environment. The winning image has been selected for the cover of Science magazine (7 February 2014, Vol. 343, #6171).
