The Koch Institute Image Awards seek to recognize the extraordinary visuals that are produced through life sciences research. Such images serve as windows into otherwise invisible biological worlds. They exemplify the exchange of ideas between science and engineering – an interplay that is integral to the Koch Institute's approach to cancer research. Simply put, these visuals are beautiful and thought-provoking.
Winning images will be exhibited in the large (nearly 8-foot) backlit square and circular displays at the Koch Institute Public Galleries. The images will be prominently visible to passersby on Main Street and visitors to the Koch Institute website. Materials within the Galleries and on the web will also engage visitors in the stories, people, and research behind the images.

The 2013 Koch Institute Image Awards are now closed to new submissions. We will begin accepting submissions for the next round of the Awards in the summer of 2013.
Any MIT students, faculty, staff, or affiliates may submit images. MIT community members at the Broad Institute and the Whitehead Institute are also eligible, as are MIT collaborators at other universities, hospitals, and private companies.
Submissions may be any visuals generated through the contributor’s own research, including micrographs, renderings, and any other forms of data. Submissions must relate to the life sciences, but may do so by depicting any number of subjects using any number of imaging/visualization technologies.
Each contributor may submit no more than five images during each competitive cycle.
