At the AIBN, we know some of the most spectacular sights in science start out as specs on a glass slide, only seen when magnified. Which is why our researchers mark National Science Week with a competition to find the best image taken under a microscope.

This year’s AIBN Image Contest shortlist includes photos of glowing neural networks, lab-grown spinal cords and glowing fish larvae, proving that some of the most spectacular science occurs on the very smallest of scales.
