Under the Coverslip – Submissions now open

Postgraduate, Masters and Honours students are invited to submit scientific images for the competition, which will involve a public exhibition and the opportunity to win prizes

Under the Coverslip (UTCS) is an annual student-run scientific imaging competition, presented by the Postgraduate Students of Anatomy Society and the Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience.

By encouraging alternative ways of presenting scientific data and ground-breaking research, the competition aims to both celebrate scientists’ work, and spark interest and debate within the non-scientific community.
