NIST Researcher Receives Kudos for Images of Labs on a Chip

Press release date: Nov 12, 2008

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) bioengineer Greg Cooksey is equally talented behind the lens of a camera as he is engineering complex microfluidic devices for biology experiments-and recently, he's received quite a bit of recognition for combining the two skills.

In the past year, Cooksey's photomicrographs-most often portraying the colorful beauty of dyes flowing through his designs-have been showcased in the Images from the Science 2 exhibition staged by the Rochester Institute of Technology (http://www.rit.edu/cias/ritphoto/ifs-2008/photo_gallery/pages/12_cooksey_1.htm and www.rit.edu/cias/ritphoto/ifs-2008/photo_gallery/pages/13_cooksey_2.htm), featured in Discover Magazine (http://discovermagazine.com/photos/02-visual-tour-of-the-world-of-science) and honored as an "image of distinction" in the 2008 Nikon Small World contest (http://www.nikonsmallworld.com/gallery.php?grouping=year&year=2008&imagepos=51).

Upcoming venues for Cooksey's photographs include Science Illustrated and SEED magazines
