LMA 2020 Image Competition: Congratulations, Aria Ahmed-Cox!
The winners of the 2020 Light Microscopy Australia Image Competition have been announced. Over 100 beautiful entries competed for the top spots in the four categories Live Cell, Life Science, In Vivo, and Materials Science. Congratulations to all winners of this years fierce competition!
Among all of the winning entries, we’d like to highlight the submission “The Paths we Trace: Lifetime of Fluorescent Membranes in Cancer” by Aria Ahmed-Cox, a PhD Student at the Children’s Cancer Institute of the University of New South Wales. In her short video, she traced vesicle trafficking in brain cancer cells on a MicroTime 200 time-resolved fluorescence microscope using PicoQuant’s rapidFLIM approach.
With this entry, she won the 1st prize in the Live Cell category.
Aria Ahmed-Cox’ work was conducted in collaboration with the Children’s Cancer Institute, Biomedical Imaging Facility, Mark Wainwright Analytical Centre, UNSW Sydney and the Faculty of Medicine, UNSW Sydney. She and her group thank the Cancer Institute NSW for their generous support and acknowledge funding from the NHMRC Program Grant (APP1091261) and ARC Centre of Excellence in Convergent Bio-Nano Science and Technology (CE140100036).
