Image Competition

Where Art Meets Science!

Showcase the beauty of your research and WIN, with our image competition!

We have teamed up with our Live Cell Imaging Partner Phase Holographic Imaging to deliver our very first Image Competition. Simply purchase any Jellagen product from one of our distributors, use in your research, create some beautiful imagery and submit before the deadline to be in with a chance to win!

Our judges will be looking for not only the beauty of your image, but also the quality of data behind it. Good Luck!

The Judges

Dr Andy Weymann MD MBA, Chief Medical Officer, Jellagen

Immediately prior to joining Jellagen, Andy was Chief Medical Officer (CMO) for Smith+Nephew, where he provided global executive leadership and oversight of Clinical, Scientific and Medical Affairs with accountability for business development, patient and product safety. He was also a Board Member of S+N Switzerland and a Board Member of Actracsys, a company acquired by S+N. Prior to his corporate career, Andy was a physician in Switzerland practising in trauma, orthopaedic surgery and sports medicine, having obtained his Masters in Human Medicine at the University of Zurich, Switzerland. Following his time as a Medical Doctor, Andy completed his MBA degree at the Simon Business School, University of Rochester NY as well expanding his experience with the board program at the Harvard Business School in Boston MA.

Kersti Alm PhD, Chief Scientific Officer, Phase Holographic Imaging PHI AB

Kersti has cooperated with PHI since 2005, while still employed at Lund University, and has been a vital part of the PHI team since 2009. All insights gained throughout her years as a Postdoc at Roswell Park Cancer Institute and Assistant and Associate Professor at Lund University have been applied to develop a genuinely novel cell analysis system. The focus has been to develop holography-based methods that will neither cause cell stress nor harm while providing accurate kinetic data. Digital holographic imaging has existed as a brainchild since the ’70s. Now, it is a reality since computers have become powerful enough to handle the algorithms required. Kersti has been part of developing digital holography for cell microscopy. And as such, she is a vital player as PHI advances cutting-edge research by supplying researchers worldwide with an advanced digital holographic microscope for cell-based science.

Dr Jennifer Paxton, Senior Lecturer in Anatomy, The University of Edinburgh

Jennifer has a background in Anatomy and Bioengineering, and gained her PhD in Tissue Engineering in 2009. After a period of postdoctoral research, she joined the University of Edinburgh as a Lecturer in Anatomy in 2014 and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in Anatomy in 2020. At Edinburgh, Jennifer has several roles in both anatomy teaching and tissue-engineering research, and leads a research laboratory focussed on developing methods to engineer tissues of the musculoskeletal system in vitro.

About Phase Holographic Imaging (PHI)

Live Cell Imaging Made Easy

PHI is the manufacturer of the HoloMonitor® live cell imaging system that enables 24/7 non-invasive analysis of cell cultures within your standard incubator. Cell biologists worldwide use PHI’s label-free cell imager to auto­mat­i­cally obtain high-content live-cell morphology, migration, and proliferation data down to a single-cell level in real-time.
