FASEB sought to recognize the most captivating representations of cutting edge biomedical research. Specifically, FASEB sought original, laboratory-based images produced by current or former NIH-funded investigators, contractors, or trainees or members of FASEB constituent societies.

These images will be useful in our ongoing efforts to generate interest among the general public and Members of Congress in learning more about biomedical research.
