The beauty of scientific discovery is showcased in the UIC Graduate College’s annual Image of Research competition. The annual event allows graduate students’ research to be seen through breathtaking images.
Breathtaking images from competition winners and honorable mentions will be exhibited from Oct. 28 through Jan. 31 at the Daley Library, then at the Library of the Health Sciences from Feb. 1 through May 15.
The grand opening of the exhibit will be held from 3 to 5:30 p.m. Oct. 28 in Room 1-470 of the Daley Library.
“The Image of Research brings together graduate students from disciplines across the campus to celebrate their research ideas and work,” said Kevin Monahan, coordinator of the exhibit and director of graduate program review. “Graduate research at UIC is as diverse as it is deep, and this exhibition brings the field and lab work to a general audience.”
The 2019 winners were chosen out of 95 still image and 10 moving image submissions.
The first-place winner of the still image competition is Danny Principe, an MD/Ph.D. student who works in the biochemistry and molecular genetics department. The winning submission is a moment of disbelief for Principe and his team, who are researching the combination of chemotherapy and immunotherapy in pancreatic cancer.
