Beginning next month, the Museum of Science and Industry will host a new photography exhibition featuring the winners of the Wellcome Image Awards. These awards recognise the creators of the most informative, striking, and technically excellent pictures from the many fields of science. This year’s submissions include: Pathways of nerve fibres in the brain, the golden scales on a Madagascan sunset moth, and a close-up look at the human retina. The expert panel of judges will announce the winners at a ceremony taking place in London in mid-March, and the exhibition will open the next day at MoSI’s Station Building, and at other prestigious venues throughout the world. The awards are organised by the Wellcome Trust, a charitable foundation which aims to improve health through science and community engagement.
