Immunofluorescence and immunohistochemistry imaging competition winners

Support scientific research in Latin America

​​The Latin America immunofluorescence & immunohistochemistry competition has now drawn to a close.

In a matter of days, we received over a hundred applications from all over Latin America.

The abcam judges have debated, deliberated and discussed. There were in excess of 100 high-quality scientific images that were then shortlisted to 20. 

We then reached out to you, the immunofluorescence experts, to vote for the best images and you answered.

Voting has now closed. Congratulations are in order for the following researchers:
