Friederike Schlumm and Christoph Götz from the Vaziri lab won together with Isabel Grießhammer (IMBA) the VBC Art&Science Contest with their video: "Incubate over night" https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=lVchRXwjJRs Incubation is a widely used method in research. Nevertheless, the underlying mechanisms are not well understood. In this project we aimed to visualize this crucial process. We therefore applied the imaging technique "stop-motion" to study an overnight incubation. Our results reveal new insights into scientific experiments. Four teams participated, with four terrific art pieces, which were exhibited in our Cafeteria, and the VBCers were voting for the best piece. See the other art pieces at: http://www.vbcphdprogramme.at/current-students/art-science-contest/

We are happy to announce that Ass.-Prof. Dr. Alipasha Vaziri was awarded the Förderungspreis 2014 of the City of Vienna. The City of Vienna recognizes outstanding artists and scientists with honors in the form of prizes and scholarships. These have been awarded since 1951 in the fields of music (composition), literature, visual arts and architecture, science and popular education. Read more about it here (german).

The current issue of nature methods highlights our recent publication on light-field microscopy (LFM) on the cover of the July 2014 issue. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="440"] Nature Methods Cover 07/2014[/caption]
"The Economist" describes the open worm project on this website and mentions our recently published technique as a crucial step in this crowd-funded project. Read "The Economist" article. Read more about Open Worm. Read more about our Method on our page. Read the paper here.
Our recent paper on "Simultaneous whole-animal 3D imaging of neuronal activity using light-field microscopy” was published today in Nature Methods. Using light-field deconvolution microscopy for functional biological imaging, we were able to simultaneous record the activity of the entire nervous system of C. elegans and showed whole brain imaging in zebrafish larvae at 20Hz volume rate.
