It's the time of year again when budding photographers have the opportunity to show off their photographic skills to the rest of the School. Staff and students are encouraged to submit photos which represent the theme of the competition: Improving Health Worldwide. This can be interpreted to reflect our work activities - both in London and overseas, studying at the School and even working in the laboratories. The judging panel are keen to see all types of photos including microscope images.
Here's 2012's winning entry, taken by Dr. Lena Lorenz in Ifakara, Tanzania. If you'd like to find out more about this photo and how it came to be taken, you can read more here
