Scientific research often produces beautiful images. This interactive gallery lets you explore every winning image from the history of Northwestern University's annual scientific images contest, "Capturing the Beauty of Science."
* Pinch and zoom to reveal amazing details and create unique, artistic compositions.
* Save your explorations to your iPhone's camera roll.
* Share them on Facebook and help us celebrate the importance, interest, and impact of scientific research.
Judged by a panel of local artists, scientists and community leaders, each image is representative of real Northwestern research across a wide range of disciplines, including medicine, chemistry, engineering and nanotechnology.
The contest is run annually by Science in Society, a Northwestern University office for science outreach and public engagement.
