Xiaoti Xu among Finalists at Inaugural UCSF Science Contest
UCSF News reports on a new science image and video competition, the first of its kind at UCSF. An image submitted by Xiaoti Xu, M.D., UCSF Plastic Surgery Resident and alumni of the Pomerantz Lab, developed with the help of Hua Tian, Ph.D., a specialist in the lab, was among the top 15 finalists out of more than 140 entries and appeared in the accompanying slideshow to the story.
A mouth forms as a single celled animal prepares to multiply, a mutant heart stutters and within a lung, a cell shatters into fragments that keep blood healthy.
These are only a sampling of the stunning visuals submitted to Sci-Resolution, UC San Francisco’s science image and video competition. The first of its kind at UCSF, the competition received more than 140 entries from approximately 50 labs across UCSF campuses. The entries are arresting simply for their appeal as works of art. But each piece also captures unique scientific stories, from routine cellular processes to groundbreaking discoveries about disease.
