Since 2001, the ALMC has held a Light Microscopy Image Contest to showcase the work of core users and generate broader interest in the core's capabilities. Participating researchers can submit their best images taken with any ALMC instrument. A winner chosen by popular vote is revealed during Show Me Research Week.
