Under the Microscope series - IMAGES Wanted!

Do you have a stunning image or video connected with or resulting from your research? Perhaps something created by a new imaging technique, high speed photography or time-lapse camera? It can be anything from the nanoscale to the astronomical.

We work in the University’s Communications Office and we’re keen to promote research through some of the incredible visuals that our researchers often create: from cancer cells to constellations, advanced materials to animal behaviour.


Following our successful Under the Microscope series, which has garnered over 1.2 million views since its launch in 2012, we are looking to produce another series of short films for the University's website and social media channels. But this time the images can be from the micro to the mega, whether the images are from under the microscope or through the telescope, we are keen to see what’s out there. It can be a static or moving image.


Please submit your high-quality movie or photograph to this email address

for consideration by Friday November 14th, providing the following information:


·         What’s the story: in lay language, describe what we are looking at, how it relates to your research and why the public might be interested in this image?

·         How’s it made: what’s the imaging technique?

·         Who are you: where do you work and what stage of your research career are you?

Please keep each answer to under 200 words.


If the film or image is too large then please send it by WeTransfer ( and email this address with the additional information. (WeTransfer is free and does not require you to download a program to use it.)
