Koch Institute Image Awards accepting submissions

The David H. Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at MIT is now accepting submissions for the second Koch Institute Image Awards. The awards seek to recognize the outstanding imagery created through life sciences research at MIT and collaborating institutions, and to use this imagery to engage public audiences.

Winners will be displayed in the Koch Institute Public Galleries, visible to passersby on Main Street. The deadline for submissions is Oct. 1.

Any MIT students, faculty, staff or affiliates may submit images. MIT community members at the Broad Institute and the Whitehead Institute are also eligible, as are MIT collaborators at other universities, hospitals and private companies. Submissions may be any visuals generated through the contributor’s own research, including micrographs, renderings and any other forms of data.
