This year’s photowalk featured CERN (Switzerland), DESY (Germany), Fermilab (USA), INFN (Italy), KEK (Japan), SLAC (USA), SUPL (Australia) and TRIUMF (Canada).

Nikon Small World

Science World is pleased to showcase the winners of the 2015 Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition. Each photomicrograph serves to show just how close the beauty and wonder of the micro-world truly is—not just for scientists, but anyone willing to open their eyes and look for it. While the top images cover a variety of subject matter, each one exhibits the exemplary technique, scientific discipline and artistry for which Nikon Small World is known.

Exhibition runs October, 2016–February, 2017

Till and McCulloch

Drs James Till and Ernest McCulloch were two Canadian scientists who pioneered the field of stem cell research with the discovery of a method to detect cells able to restore blood production in transplanted irradiated mice. This finding prompted the later identification of cells able to regenerate other tissues, including skin, muscle and brain. This has led to advances in research and treatment of cancer.
