Caption: Among thousands of entries, Nikon has awarded its top honor to Jennifer Peters, Ph.D., and Michael Taylor, Ph.D., both of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital for their photomicrograph of the blood-brain barrier of a live zebrafish embryo. It is believed to be the first image showing the formation of the blood-brain barrier in a live animal. Nikon's Small World contest recognizes excellence in photomicrography--photographs made through a microscope.
