Katie O’Shaughnessy’s award-winning embryonic little skate photograph is currently on display at the National Institute of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. Katie’s photograph won the FASEB BioArt image contest in August 2013. The winning images were on display on Capitol Hill and then moved to a display at the NIH main campus. This photo was also featured in an article about BioArt in a subsequent issue of Science.
In addition to this honor, the NIH director, Francis Collins, even wrote about Katie and the Cohn Lab’s research of non-model organisms in a recent blog post. Katie is a Genetics/Genomics graduate student and works with Marty Cohn, Professor and HHMI Early Career Scientist, in the Cancer & Genetics Research Complex.
