These images were submitted by Mackenzie Bloom, junior in Biology/Genetics, as part of the Image of Research competition sponsored by the University of Kansas Libraries. Her entry was selected as the Research Is a Process Award winner for 2016.
Image of Research is a competition that celebrates the role undergraduate students play in research and innovation at KU. A multidisciplinary panel of judges selected winners based on the textual connection between the submitted image and the research, the originality and creativity of the submitted image, and the collaborative, open, and dynamic nature of the research. This award recognizes multiple submissions from a single entrant that demonstrate the iterative and dynamic nature of the research process.
