2nd Prize Winner

Chan Jia Pei, Duke-NUS Medical School, Singapore
Psychedelic cerebrum. A coronal section of a mouse brain was stained with markers for myelin (green, Invitrogen™ Alexa Fluor™ 488 conjugate), axons (red, Invitrogen™ Alexa Fluor™ 555 conjugate), microglia (magenta, Invitrogen™ Alexa Fluor™ 633 conjugate), and nuclei (blue, Hoescht™ 33342 dye). The fluorescent markers highlight the structure of the cortex, hippocampus, striatum, thalamus, and hypothalamus in this section.

3rd Prize Winner

Jonathan Aow, National University of Singapore, Singapore
GFP-expressing primary hippocampal neuron. Primary hippocampal neurons were cultured for 15 days, transfected with GFP, and then fixed and stained 2 days later. The somatodendritic compartment was labeled with anti-MAP2A/B antibody and Invitrogen™ Alexa Fluor™ 647 secondary antibody (red), axons were labeled with anti–NF-L antibody and Alexa Fluor™ 405 secondary antibody (blue); neighboring nontransfected neurons are visible. Images were acquired on a Zeiss™ LSM700 confocal microscope with a 63x objective.
